ABOUT PEER



Program Evaluation and Educational Research Group (PEER) was established at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2003, and later became a recharge/service center in 2009. The mission of PEER is to provide program evaluation and related educational research and reporting services to community agency programs and other sponsored programs being conducted both within and outside UCF. As part of one of America's leading metropolitan research universities, PEER is committed to the pursuit of excellence and intellectual growth and has many dedicated resources around the educational sector. PEER staff include the PEER director, UCF faculty members, outside consultants, and graduate research assistants. PEER has strong experience in planning, directing, and conducting evaluation; development of surveys and test assessments; producing training materials; and the analysis of outcome measures. This along with formal academic training and years of experience in evaluation, research design, curriculum design, and assessment, make PEER particularly well suited to meet program requirements for project evaluation.
