Evaluating Progress and Impact When Transitioning to Student-Centered Learning

All new education programs and initiatives are subject to scrutiny from policymakers, media and parents. However, the level of scrutiny state innovation and pilot programs face is often heightened since these innovative programs are, by definition, untested. Little empirical data is available for states to reference when developing a program or measuring the full impact on students and their outcomes.

Though challenging, it’s critical that states can evaluate, report and communicate the progress and impact of their innovation and pilot programs.

A thoughtful evaluation plan informs parents, teachers, the community, policymakers and others about what is working and what isn’t.

This fourth brief in the series Transitioning to Student-Centered Learning: Policy Solutions for States outlines practical steps states can take to develop thoughtful evaluation plans to support their long-term vision for innovative pilots and programs.
