Bruckerhoff, Charles; Bruckerhoff, Theresa
This is the year-end evaluation for fiscal year 1998 of the Connecticut Statewide Systemic Initiative (SSI), known as Project CONNSTRUCT. The Connecticut Academy for Education in Mathematics, Science, and Technology is the fiscal agent for the SSI grant from the National Science Foundation. Data collection methods for this evaluation included interviewing key participants, observing activities and events organized or sponsored by the Academy, conducting surveys, analyzing student assessment data, and collecting relevant documents. The accomplishments of the Academy in this 7th year of operation include: (1) establishment of accountability procedures; (2) organization of a statewide technical assistance program to help school districts; (3) publication of mathematics and science program evaluation guides; (4) progress toward completion of an assessment project for science achievement; (5) organization and coordination of professional development services for teachers; and (6) solicitation of proposals from major technology corporations for partnerships to design an educational information management system. Information from a variety of sources indicates that the Connecticut Academy is making significant progress toward its goals for educational improvement and teacher professional development. Some issues for future program development are discussed. (SLD)
