core-largerThe Cornell Office for Research on Evaluation (CORE) was formalized in 2008 as the organizational framework for research on evaluation conducted under the leadership of Professor William Trochim. With funding from NSF, NIH, and Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE), CORE has developed and tested "systems evaluation" methods, measures, and tools. CORE aims to make evaluation an integral part of program planning, implementation, management, and dissemination, rather than a separate and sometimes externally-imposed activity. CORE works with the university’s extension and outreach activities in a number of ways. In its Evaluation Partnership project, CORE works with CCE county associations and programs to build their capacity for self-evaluation. BCTR staff work closely with CORE, including developing research and outreach projects, strengthening BCTR program evaluation efforts, and conducting research on the evaluation process itself.
