Process Module: Kansas Quality Performance Accreditation (QPA).
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
Consistent with educational reform efforts, the Quality Performance Assessment (QPA) Process Module was designed to disseminate information about the QPA Process, and to be a training vehicle so that members of the Kansas State Board of Education Outcomes Education Team and the Kansas education community might have the knowledge base necessary to effectively communicate and plan a school improvement process at state and local levels. The document is divided into the following parts: (1) a discussion of desired module outcomes; (2) background information on outcomes accreditation activities; (3) a QPA orientation and overview including the phase-in cycle (transition stage) proposed timeliness, QPA stages, and operational concerns; and (4) the school improvement process--readiness, needs assessment, mission, setting improvement plan outcomes, plan for improvement, implementation, evaluation, reporting, and monitoring. A bibliography, a QPA glossary of terms, common questions and answers, a directory of the outcomes education team, a directory of QPA advisory council members, a contact address for ordering copies of Process Module transparencies, training tips, and an evaluation form for training sessions are appended.
