Evaluation involves assessing the strengths and weaknesses of programs, policies, personnel, products, and organizations to improve their effectiveness.
The Texas Evaluation Network (TEN) provides a statewide interdisciplinary organization for advocacy, networking, and the exploration, development and exchange of theoretical, methodological, and practical knowledge related to the field of evaluation. TEN is a not-for-profit organization with three main purposes:
- Promoting and advocating evaluation and building evaluation capacity
- Providing professional development opportunities for Texas evaluators
- Establishing a venue for networking and the exchange of theoretical, methodological, and practical knowledge related to the field of evaluation
TEN is the newest local affiliate of the American Evaluation Association (AEA). See the other affiliates of AEA.
