Evaluation in education is the word used to discuss how the effectiveness of the learning environment is assessed.
Shared resources for evaluating wikiversity resources or courses run on wikiversity are being developed (see, e.g., Valuation).

Evaluation in research is a formal procedure to quantify the level of actual or anticipated parameter under investigation. This evaluation may be theoretical, experimental or hybrid (see, e.g., Seismic performance evaluation).
