Wang, Margaret C.; And Others
In a survey of educational researchers, school and district administrators, and policymakers, 1,818 respondents rated educational practices and policies according to their influence on learning and assessability. Classroom practices, design and delivery of curriculum, and schoolwide practices were rated as more influential than federal, state, and district policies; however, the latter were rated as more assessable. In general, researchers and practitioners agreed about which practices and policies are influential but not about their assessability. Practices and policies rated both influential and assessable are the most feasible for use in educational planning and evaluation; those rated influential but less assessable call for development of new observational measures. This survey data can be used to guide local program development, assessment development, and the monitoring of program implementation and evaluation of outcomes.
