Evaluation is claimed to be an important component of the Advanced Technology Education (ATE) program. However an issue exists about the ATE evaluation. Evidence is provided that suggests some evaluation is taking place, however the information is limited and some findings are contradictory. Based on the findings, it is recommended that additional information be gathered to fill the knowledge gaps. There is uncertainty about the nature of the evaluation work, who is doing it, and how useful has it been to the projects and centers. A research design is presented to address these and other questions.
