AISD REACH Evaluation Objectives
Evaluation objectives will include the following:
Scope and Method
Perceptions of the impact of the program on staff and student performance will be collected from participants throughout the school year in the form of surveys and focus groups. District human resources data and student performance data will be used to evaluate the relationships among program elements and activities, educator recruitment and retention, and student performance.
Data analysis procedures will include summaries of survey responses regarding topics including program knowledge and satisfaction, data use, PLCs, reflective practice, teacher self-efficacy, school climate, attachment to school and the profession, and job satisfaction. Focus group data will be examined for themes and summarized for formative evaluation purposes. Correlations, regressions, and other appropriate analyses will be performed to examine the possible relationships between and among factors (e.g., SLO quality, rigor, and achievement; student TAKS performance; number of years in program; novice teacher status; and teacher retention).
A series of evaluation reports will be published as data become available and will identify successes, challenges, and recommendations. Data will be submitted to TEA for the D.A.T.E. grant and the Beginning Teacher Induction grant, and to the USDE for the TIF grant.
