Research and Evaluation
Knowledge Management at the Core of CASME's Operations
The major outcome judgement of this evaluation can be summed up in few words.
There is no doubt that Casme has had a very profound, positive influence on science and mathematics education in KwaZulu-Natal.
Every piece of available evidence from every source that could be tapped pointed to the successes of Casme, and, despite deliberate probing, no negative evidence of any substance regarding the overall goals of Casme came to light.
This report could be filled with glorifying evidence and testimonials heaping praise on both the organization and, most particularly, the highly competent and dedicated individuals within Casme. However, beyond providing positive reinforcement to Casme, such a report would be of little use.
Casme is not without problems, and as South Africa changes, so must Casme change. As such, the bulk of this report is dedicated to providing information and suggestions for change that should serve Casme as it strives to meet the challenges of the future. However, readers should bear in mind the overall positive judgement of Casme as they progress through this report.
