Instructions for using the PREM assessment instruments
Welcome to the PREM's Assessment page!
The Assessment component of our program
is very important for two reasons:
- to show our funding agency that we
are fulfilling our stated objectives, and
- to know which areas or activities
our program need improvement.
Therefore, it is vital that all PREM faculty
and students, and our program's affiliates fill the following questionnaires
as soon as necessary. Please read the following descriptions to determine
you need to use and when:
- If you were recently involved, in any way, in a PREM's related formal
presentation, a publication, a proposal, a new course, workshop or
outreach activity, please
fill this "activity
assessment questionnaire (http://prem.uprm.edu/assessment/activity_assessment_questionnaire.htm). Please, make sure that you repeat the questionnaire for each activity.
- If you are organizing a workshop, talk or any other outreach activity,
you can download an assessment questionnaire from the following links
in its Spanish version or English
Distribute this questionnaire among the participants or the audience
beforehand and at the end of the activity collect the filled ones.
