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.
The views, findings, opinions, and recommendations expressed in these reports are solely those of the project evaluator(s), and do not represent the official views, opinions, or policies of the United States Department of Commerce or any of its individual agency components.

All research complies with federal Protection of Human Subjects guidelines.
