#7 A Summative Examination of the Relationship between GEAR UP Services and Postsecondary Enrollment
Effectively evaluating GEAR UP grants is critical for all programs. Join this presentation that will provide an over¬view of a program evaluation of GEAR UP North Carolina. This exploratory evaluation used quantitative methodologies to analyze student and parent services in relation to postsecondary enrollment, and also examined the relationship between meeting grant objectives and postsecondary enrollment rates. The presenter will discuss the results of the summative evaluation, as well as policy recommendations. Attendees will learn the importance of conducting such evaluations, what the results mean, and how to use this study to create an evaluation framework for your program.
