How well does your school measure the work it does? Most schools respond to this question by saying, “We are doing a really good job.” Unfortunately, many of these schools are merely using every way under the sun to analyze their assessment results.

Not looking at our processes or the school as an entire system can keep us from being able to adjust what we are doing to get the results we desire. The systems thinkers tell us that about 80% of what needs to change to get better results is US! Us, as in the processes, practices, programs, and interventions currently in use that are producing our current results. Measuring and evaluating our system, programs, and processes is the logical next step to seeing the forest and the trees.
Do you know which processes and programs are working and which are not working to ensure every student is learning? Join us in this preconference to learn how to use the Program Evaluation Tool to implement processes and programs with integrity and fidelity, to monitor implementation, and to evaluate the impact of that implementation.
Participants will utilize a case study learn how to
