Evaluating Entering Research


The Wisconsin Institute for Science Education and Community Engagement (WISCIENCE), provides centralized, common assessment and evaluation surveys that use the Entering Research Learning Assessment (ERLA) to promote and systematize the evaluation of undergraduate and graduate research experiences and training programs. These surveys are available to all trained facilitators of Entering Research (ER), regardless of whether they are using ER activities in their implementations. Programs using the ER curriculum can also use standardized program/course evaluation questions designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the curriculum in training program implementations. For more information on attending Facilitator Training to learn how to implement research mentee training, visit the Training page.
