Facing the Emperor: Student Work as a Tool for the Evaluation of a Goals 2000 Professional Development Initiative.
Straut, Diana; Fuerstenau, Chari; Martin, Ann
The evaluation of a Goals 2000 initiative in New York state is explored through these four dimensions: focus, innovation, involvement of teachers in program evaluation, and the relevance of program evaluation to educational practice. In central southern New York state, seven public and six nonpublic schools are collaborators in the Goals 2000 professional development initiative studied. Although evaluation data came from many sources, the primary method of data collection, and the focus of this study, was a process known as a "Collaborative Review of Student Work" (CRSW). CRSW is a process that brings peer coaches and coached teachers together to examine samples of student work carefully, giving teachers a forum to examine the connection between their practice and student performance. Evaluation shows the CRSW to be an evaluation tool that makes contributions to educational research and program evaluation along the four dimensions identified. Some technical considerations in using CRSW are outlined. (Contains 5 figures and 15 references.) (SLD)
