Improving New Teacher Supports through District Capacity-Building: Final Evaluation Report for CSTP's New Teacher Alliance
Stokes, Laura; Helms, Jenifer
Inverness Research
Inverness Research is an independent national educational research group based in California. Its mission is to help projects assess the quality and efficacy of their efforts, and to help funders better understand the design of their initiatives and the value of their investments. Inverness Research has served by contract with CSTP (Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession) as the evaluator for the New Teacher Alliance. Its first annual report (August 2007) assessed the status of capacity for quality new teacher support within the participating districts and ESDs (Educational Service Districts) as of spring 2007, early in the project. Its second annual report (August 2008) examined the experiences, perceptions, and needs of new teachers as a window onto the districts' and ESDs' growing capacity to provide induction supports. In this report of the third and final year of funding, the authors document improvements made within the past year, summarize overall accomplishments made over the grant period, assess the prospects for sustainable effort beyond the project, and offer their summative reflections on the NTA (New Teacher Alliance) project's return on investment. Appended are: (1) Framework for NTA Site Visits; and (2) NTA New Teacher Survey. (Contains 1 figure, 2 tables and 12 footnotes.) [This report was written with assistance from Judy Hirabayashi and Laurie Senauke. For the second annual report, see ED512436.]
