Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative (WEC) conducts and supports program evaluations within the preK-12 education system through partnerships with school districts, professional associations, state agencies, education-based community organizations, and Cooperative Educational Service Agencies (CESAs).

We are a community of evaluators with diverse content and methodological expertise from across WCER and the School of Education at UW-Madison. In addition to the network of experienced evaluation professionals, WEC includes an outreach clinic that provides services to small projects through applied training of graduate students in evaluation and research methods.
