Bio

Evaluator
Hilarie Davis is an evaluator who focuses on intensive, research-based evaluations of interactive materials, courses and learning environments. She has evaluated long-term projects in the use of technology, online environments, reading interventions, NASA-based materials with high needs students, Earth systems science for post-graduate educators and environmental health for high school students. Hilarie specializes in collaborative evaluation that establishes feedback loops and examines the effects of interventions over time and in different contexts. She uses video as well as advanced qualitative and quantitative tools to provide insight into the nature and extent of effects. She has designed digital portfolios for after-school programs, literacy development, school change and online courses. She has conducted professional evaluations for projects funded by NSF, NIEHS, NASA and USDOE, as well as local and regional universities and school systems. As a former middle school teacher, Director of Curriculum and college professor, Hilarie brings a strong practical background to understanding the context for educational change.
