Work Package 5 ‘Evaluation, testing and validation of design’ (WP5) is to carry out an impact assessment of the experimental labs. A rigorous impact assessment methodology will be elaborated and implemented, including quantitative and qualitative methods, aiming at measuring and registering the results of the labs in connection to the expected results and planned objectives, in terms of impact (if the expected objectives have been reached at the level of participants in relation to changing of behaviour and adopting the techniques and instruments in the professional activity) and process (applicability of the labs’ design).
WP5 is divided in three sub-tasks, as follows:
T.5.1 Drafting the guidelines and methodology of impact assessment
T.5.2 Carrying-out the impact assessment, incl. the implementation of three tailored questionnaires to be applied before each experimental labs' session, a focus group on the impact the experimental labs, and a control focus group on the same topic but formed out of individuals who did not take part in the experimental labs.
T.5.3 Preparing the report on experimental labs' impact
Most of the deliverables under WP5 are confidential; however, those that are public will be published in due time upon delivery in the Deliverables Section. All results and
findings that are available to the public can be found in the
Toolkit validation's Documents Section.
Information about each focus group under the project can be found in the Toolkit validation's Events Section.
