Program Evaluation

Due to the very complex nature of the BUILD programs across the country, an extended and interlinked evaluation system has been put in place to thoroughly assess and evaluate each individual BUILD program while assessing the success and national contributions of the overall NIGMS BUILD initiative. For Project Pathways, internal and external evaluation teams have collaborated with each other and the Coordination and Evaluation Center (CEC) at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) to ensure that project goals and deadlines are accomplished. Focusing on both formative and summative evaluation methods, Xavier’s evaluation team is currently developing predictive analytic plans as more data becomes available for analysis.
