A Guide for Conducting the "Collaborative Action Team Self-Assessment."
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
In a Collaborative Action Team (CAT), people representing the school, community, and home, including students, form a partnership committed to improving results for children, youth, and families. One way to determine and build on the individual and group strengths of the CAT is to perform self-assessments to enable team members to reflect on where they have been, what has been accomplished, and where they want to go. An initial self-assessment followed by periodic reassessments is recommended. This document contains guidelines for conducting the self-assessment. The self-assessment plan corresponds to team identification, team mobilization, project development, and project implementation elements. The CAT self-assessment form is included, and guidelines are presented for analyzing and interpreting the data. (SLD)
