What Kind of Data Are Needed To Evaluate a Statewide Systematic Education Reform?
Scott, Dominic; Ivory, Gary; Rodriguez, Mariela
Evaluators of a statewide systemic school reform effort used Likert-type survey items to assess teachers satisfaction with the reform effort. They also asked teachers to respond to an open-ended item on the conversations about teaching and learning in which they had engaged in the previous 18 months. Thirty-three schools responded, for a total of 430 usable teacher questionnaires. Though response rates were low, qualitative analysis revealed that the teachers had conversed about the same topics the school reform effort had promoted. Discussing evaluation findings led the leadership of the school reform effort to new understandings of the kind of evaluation data why needed to continue to monitor their efforts.
