This paper describes a one-year project that addresses a national need to build the evaluation capacity of engineering educators to effectively evaluate engineering education programs, projects, and innovations. The project goal was to lay the foundation for the construction of an inventory of evaluation tools that could be used as part of evaluation by engineering educators. Project leaders conducted a search through ten years of archived literature to identify existing evaluation tools. An initial database was developed to document a variety of characteristics about the tools. A panel of stakeholders was assembled to assist in the review of tools and the structure of the database. Recommendations for refinement, further development, and dissemination of the inventory were offered by the panel and are documented in this paper.
