EVA's evaluation areas

We provide usable knowledge for society. The Danish Evaluation Institute, EVA, explores and develops the quality of early childhood education, primary and lower secondary, upper secondary education, higher education and adult education.

Early childhood education

EVA evaluates the work of day care and schools to develop the well-being, learning and language skills of children. We develop tools and communicate Scandinavian research for day care and local and central authorities.
