The Schools Attuned[R] Course: 2008 Participant Evaluation Survey Results. Summary Report
All Kinds of Minds
The Schools Attuned Program is a professional development program designed to improve educators' ability to help students with differences in learning find success in school. The specific goals of the program are to (1) support educators in developing and demonstrating expertise regarding differences in learning, (2) strengthen educators' understanding of students' strengths and interests and value how those strengths and interests can serve as pathways to school success, (3) provide educators with clear, specific, actionable strategies to manage differences in learning, and (4) provide school faculty with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to enact changes in policy, practices, and culture that address learning variation in the school. This summary report presents program evaluation results for the Schools Attuned Courses that occurred in sites across the United States, Canada, and Switzerland between April 2008 and June 2009. Analyses are based on information from the Schools Attuned Course Participant Survey, an online survey available to participants through the Schools Attuned website following the last session of the Course. In 2008, a total of 2,065 participants completed program evaluation surveys following 184 Course events: 75% of participants through the Generalist Path, and 25% through the Subject Specialist Path. Survey results are presented in the following sections of this report: (1) Overall Course Quality Ratings; (2) Ratings of Facilitator Skill; (4) Course Objectives, and (5) Additional Participant Comments.
