Evaluating JISC Transformations Projects

The Transformations programme is intended to support institutions in achieving strategic change, making use of existing JISC and other resources and drawing upon peer and professional support and practice groups.

The logic model for the evaluation is therefore assessing how effectively this is achieved at all levels. The evaluation assesses the measurable change within institutions, focusing on how the JISC funding has supported/ enabled this change, through use of JISC resources, critical friend expertise and peer support.

Key Principles

Self-evaluation – embedding the evaluation discipline and practice at project level, synthesis level, across critical friends and within the peer networks.

Measurement of change – establishing the applicable baseline or maturity level, determining the indicators/metrics (means of measurement, this should also include ROI – Return On Investment), defining key evaluation tasks e.g. data gathering process

Determining attribution – ensuring (at all levels) that the impact of the JISC intervention can be extracted from the wider project evaluation, and hence provide attributable indicators and evidence.

Projects should now be:

  1. Establishing baseline /maturity level
  2. Defining applicable metrics/indicators (evidence)
  3. Thinking about identifying areas attributable to JISC intervention
  4. Gathering and logging applicable indicators (evidence)
