Student Evaluation Case Competition

The Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) and the Canadian Evaluation Society Educational Fund (CESEF) co-sponsor the competition. On our website, students, professors and supporters of the competition will find the information needed to get involved.

The Student Evaluation Case Competition helps students build their evaluation skills using real life cases. In February of each year, teams of students from universities and colleges from across Canada assess a case and submit their response via the internet. Teams are comprised of three to five students and may come from any faculty. They may compete in English or French. We also accept teams comprised of at least two Canadians who are studying at a non-Canadian university.

Team submissions are reviewed by a panel of judges and the top three teams are invited to assess a new case and present in front of a live audience at the CES annual conference. All finalists receive free conference registration and funding towards their travel costs, and the winning team is presented with the competition plaque.

Check out the pages on our website to find more details on the competition purpose, rules, previous cases and student submissions, as well as other resources to help you participate.



The CESEF is an independent organization created by the Canadian Evaluation Society in 1990 and reorganized in 2005 to increase national assessment capacity through educational activities. In 2006, CESEF was officially registered as a Canadian charity.

The Fund maintains partnerships with the Canadian Evaluation Society and the Consortium of Universities for Evaluation Education to promote the shared goal of developing the area of program evaluation by increasing access to education, training and professional development.

We invite interested people, potential partners, students and evaluation specialists to send us their comments and suggestions.
