Projects at Evaluation Unit (EVAL)

All of our projects rely on state-of-the-art research and have a strong scientific foundation, regarding both the field of the evaluation and the evaluation methods used.

Our team of evaluation experts can help with anything from a short consultation to designing and conducting large evaluations including multiple data sources and evaluation methods. We can:

  • Design, plan and conduct evaluations for your research project, course, innovation, or intervention.
  • Assess and advise in evaluation design and instruments (surveys, interview guides, observation templates etc.)

Our evaluations have covered diverse subjects such as patient experience, IT support, collaboration, animal welfare, and education.

Previous stakeholders for these kinds of projects include research groups; Stockholm County Council; National Board of Health and Welfare; interest associations such as patient organisations; educators; central administrative functions; and departments both within and outside of KI.

Evaluation of courses, programmes and teaching innovations

We evaluate courses as well as whole programmes, teaching methods, and other innovations for learning, such as mentor programmes. In this area, we have recently worked with:

Development of education quality systems

We are working together with different education programmes to develop functional, effective and useful quality systems with the goal of enhancing the quality of the education. Within these projects we develop reliable and valid ways to measure the students’ experience of their education.

We have an ongoing collaboration with Karolinska Institutet’s Speech Therapy and Medical programmes, where we follow and support the programmes’ continuous efforts to improve educational quality. These efforts include giving advice on all of the programmes’ student evaluation surveys, analysing these surveys and giving recommendations on what needs to be improved and why.

We have together with Nordic Consortium for Laboratory Animal Science Education and Training (NCLASET) created, developed and refined a quality-assurance framework that supports the development of a quality culture. This framework also actively contributes to the quality monitoring of the consortium´s training modules used by a large number of stakeholders nationally.

Employees’ experiences of how work environment and patient care were influenced by changes in scheduling of physicians

The aim of the project was to investigate how employees at a clinic experienced their work environment and care of patients as influenced by changes in the doctors’ working schedule. Interviews were conducted with staff members at the clinic, and based on the findings a questionnaire was developed and distributed to all staff members.
