The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and Alberta Education have contracted a three-year evaluation of the use of the CSA Distance Learning program in Grade 7-9 schools in Alberta. The primary method of delivery of this program is though the use of IP videoconference technology delivered over the Alberta SuperNet. Five school jurisdictions representing a wide distribution of students throughout the province have agreed to participate in the evaluation. The multiple-methods approach to this evaluation will examine change in student attitudes towards science and their knowledge of science over the duration of the project. All CSA seminars will be videotaped. As well, changes in the way teachers use experts in the classroom and their overall teaching of science are being examined. Both teachers and technical support people in the jurisdiction have agreed to keep journals of their experiences. This paper describes the design of this evaluation.
