PrEval Platform

Mapping of eva­luation capacities in the field of extremism prevention, democracy promotion and civic education | extended data basis

Based on the results of the first PrEval project, the PrEval Platform provides a systematic overview of eva­luation capacities in the field of extremism pre­vention, democracy promotion and civic education in Germany.

It builds on the data basis of an initial nationwide survey of evaluation actors from 2020/2021, which was updated and expanded as part of the project "PrEval - Zukunftswerkstätten". Therefore, another nationwide survey was conducted in the evaluation practices of extremism prevention, democracy promotion and civic education with further questions on current needs and challenges.

Through further regular surveys, the platform will gradually be developed into a monitoring instrument. Additionally, further analysis options will be provided in order to determine whether the diverse expectations of quality assurance in general and evaluation practices in particular can be met with the current evaluation capacities.

The platform has also been available in English since spring 2023.

Capabilities of the platform

The platform is composed of two main views that cover different levels of functionality: the capa­city overview and the analysis overview.

In the capacity overview, institutions active in third-party or self-­evaluation can be searched and filtered on an inter­active map. In addition to a quick overview of the eva­luation landscape, it is also easy to find network partners throughout Germany.

The analysis overview also offers a variety of other analysis and visualization options for both external and self-evaluation actors. This allows opportunities for improvement and challenges to be understood, but also highlights strengths of the evaluation sector that are important for its further development.
