Grantee Project Evaluations
Beginning in 1998 the Technology Opportunities Program (TOP) required all grant recipients to conduct evaluations of their projects. Evaluations are based on project goals and objectives and were intended to aid in self-monitoring that allowed mid- course corrections, assessment of short-term impacts, and development of indicators of long-range impact.
Individual project evaluation reports provide useful information
to those interested in replicating, or adapting, TOP projects. Taken
collectively, evaluations should provide practitioners in different
programmatic areas with guidance in the development of new projects.
In addition, individual project evaluations provided TOP feedback
for program planning and improvement.
