The National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research (NISER) provides quality evaluation services to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research and education sectors, including academic communities, not-for-profit organizations, and government entities.
NISER was founded in 2016 under the leadership of Dr. Pamela Bishop, and is part of the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), housed at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
NISER's staff has experience in systems-level evaluation, a deep understanding of interdisciplinary team science, a professional collaborative approach to program evaluation and research, and the ability to untangle the complexity of large-scale STEM programs. We offer a range of data-driven services to best serve our clients' needs.
NISER staff have been the evaluators for NIMBioS activities since 2008 and have produced over 175 reports for the variety of diverse research and education activities fostered by the center, the most expansive set of evaluations ever carried out for a major NSF Center. These evaluations are openly available to the organizers and community in order to enhance the quality of ongoing and future activities as well as to encourage the use of evaluation processes in the development of new activities and programs.
