International and Foreign Language Education Evaluation Support

The IMPAQ* team, including ICF Macro as subcontractor, provided technical assistance on evaluation to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education for IFLE applicants and grantees through development of improved performance measures and other evaluation guidance materials. This project had two main objectives: 1) improve the effectiveness of IFLE’s programs, and 2) increase transparency and accountability. Tasks included a limited literature search of research, evaluation studies, and other publications related to IFLE programs; the development of a searchable database of relevant publications for the IFLE office; overseeing the development of office-wide and program-specific logic models; the development of outcome measures, analysis of existing performance data, and recommendations for developing a comprehensive program evaluation strategy.

*IMPAQ attained this contract after the acquisition of Berkeley Policy Associates in 2013
