This poster presents the results of a systematic review of all grants made by the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Education and Human Resources that focused on advancing STEM education evaluation theory, practice, and methods in the decade spanning 2004 through 2013. We reviewed all abstracts in the NSF awards database containing the word "evaluation" for this time frame. Of these 2,990 awards, 160 focused specifically on advancing STEM education evaluation. Using the results, we developed an inventory of the grant outcomes as they pertained to materials produced. The findings provide a high-level view of NSF's investment in evaluation.
