Understanding Evolution evaluation

Rockman et al (REA), an independent research and evaluation group with expertise in technology interventions in education, conducted a thorough, multi-component evaluation of Understanding Evolution also referred to in the evaluation as WWW.evolution as the name originally submitted within the proposal. Over the course of the website's development, the evaluation explored multiple aspects of the website and its constituent elements, ranging from its appeal and utility, to its ability to help users understand new concepts and acquire strategies for and confidence in teaching evolution. The evaluation included both formative elements intended to help the design team create an appealing, user-friendly, and useful website, and summative elements designed to explore the impact of the site on its target populations.
