Indicator Sets for the Information Planner.
Arrasmith, Dean G.; Davis, Ann E.
Information about the outcomes, processes, and context of teaching and learning are being used to plan and monitor school-improvement efforts in many schools. Meaningful information shared within a school community can effectively coalesce broad support for responsive school-improvement efforts. An information planner is being developed by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory to support the important use of school-community information captured in indicator systems. In order to help school-planning teams focus on potentially relevant indicators, the information planner will suggest sets of indicators keyed by the potential purpose and context of the school-planning teams using the system. This report includes the sets of indicators that will be included in the information planner for effective schools, rural schools, early-childhood programs, and education-to-work programs. The appendix contains characteristics of effective schools, possible indicators, and guiding questions for using information from indicators. (LMI)
