Building Capacity for the Improvement of Educational Practice: An Evaluation of NIE's State Dissemination Grants Program. Volume V: Executive Summary of the Final Report.
Madey, Doren L.; And Others
This report summarizes the major findings and recommendations of the final evaluation of the State Dissemination Grants Program (SDGP), a major initiative within the mission of the National Institute of Education to assist state educational agencies (SEAs) in implementing, strengthening, and institutionalizing dissemination services that improve educational practice and equity. After brief descriptions of SEA dissemination systems, the SDGP, and the evaluation study, a summary of findings notes that dissemination capacity was being built. Factors affecting the building of capacity are then delineated as state factors, program design and management factors, and other structural factors, and four major recommendations are stated. Addenda include a description of data sources and collection methods, and a map showing states that received grants through the program. (NRP)
