Evaluation is the systematic collection and analysis of data to assess whether an activity has been effective, achieved its objectives, or had an impact. It is an important part of any project or programme because it can assess the feasibility or development of a programme of work (formative), the overall success or value of completed work (summative) and to capture the learning that has taken place during the activity.
All JISC projects, programmes or services are evaluated and occasionally JISC will also undertake longitudinal evaluation to assess whether outcomes have been embedded in learning, teaching research and administration.
