Persuasive Data Presentation for a Voluntary School Effectiveness Project.
Breen, Thomas F., III
In the Connecticut School Effectiveness Project, data are collected on seven characteristics of effective schooling: safe and orderly environment, clear school mission, instructional leadership, high expectations, opportunity to learn and time on task, frequent monitoring of student progress, and home-school relations. These data are collected through interviews and questionnaires and through a search of school records for achievement and archival information. Since the Connecticut project is essentially voluntary, analyses of the data must be presented as vividly as possible to convince school staff of the need to take corrective action in indicated areas, so that effective action plans will be implemented. This paper describes the various ways the data are displayed to produce a persuasive presentation. These ways include the analysis of the School Effectiveness Interview including the integrated item profile, the School Effectiveness Questionnaire, and the Achievement Profile. Examples of these analytical presentations are included as exhibits. (Author)
