Student Competition in Evaluation

CES is organizing an annual competition for university students in various disciplines with relation to evaluation. Students organized in small teams compete for the best evaluation design for a specific project or program.

The primary goal of the competition is building evaluation capacities. Students will have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge from methodology and other courses in practice, develop evaluation thinking and the ability to analyze programs, all that in a very short time frame. The evaluation also enriches the teaching of relevant courses while it increases the profile of the evaluation profession in the Czech Republic.

In Fall 2017 the CES organized a successful second round of the competition. The third  round was carried out in fall 2018.

The fourth round for academic year 2020/2021 will be open during year 2020. Coaches of student teams (university professors and/or evaluation professionals) can register their teams. For more information, consult this presentation.

The competition has been inspired by a Canadian experience, for more information, visit the Canadian Competition official website
