Guide to Evaluating the Essentials Training
Education Development Center, Inc.
Countries that begin implementing the Intel[R] Teach to the Future Essentials course after March of 2006 are required to collect data using the Intel[R] Teach Essentials End of Training Survey to help support program improvement. This End of Training evaluation toolkit provides guidelines on: (1) End of Training Survey administration; (2) The evaluation objectives of the End of Training Survey; (3) Organizing the survey data, specifically how to clean and code the data; and (4) Analyzing the survey data. This guide will help new evaluators understand how to use and analyze the data from this required survey. The guidelines in this toolkit are designed to provide an evaluation framework for local evaluators and Education Managers who are in the initial phase of evaluating Intel[R] Teach to the Future. This toolkit will also help clarify the types of analyses that can be done with the End of Training data for those Education Managers and local evaluators who have been collecting End of Training data for many years. The purpose of conducting the End of Training Survey is to find out if the localized version of the Essentials Program is being delivered effectively, and to provide local program staff with the information necessary to improve and adapt the program to meet the needs of teachers in their country. Appended are: (1) End of Training Required Survey; and (2) Intel[R] 2006 End of Training Survey Coding Sheet. (Contains 6 figures.) [This report was developed for Intel[R] Teach to the Future.]
