    Abstract

    In this extended abstract, we describe the trend in reporting performance assessments of publicly funded social programs as a result of public demands for accountability and its effect on evaluation. XSEDE's Training, Education, and Outreach Services (TEOS) external evaluation team outlines the differences between performance measurement and program evaluation, makes a case for their integration, and describes their effort to design and implement such an evaluation within XSEDE. Plans for integrating the developing performance measurement system and program evaluation within TEOS are discussed as well as initial steps toward integration to date.
