A series of case study evaluation reports provide an in-depth examination of the programs that comprise the Indigenous STEM Education Project.

Case study reports provide an in-depth assessment of the degree to which programs are meeting their intended outcomes, as described in Impact Pathways. Our approach to case studies includes ensuring the voices of program participants and communities are strongly represented. Case studies utilise a range of evidence to make assessments of program success. Evidence generally comprises information collected through interviews, surveys, and administrative and government data. The case study reports take a strengths-based approach, focusing on what is working well and how to replicate and sustain positive outcomes.
