Framing a project with assessment in mind

1) Step back and look at the larger picture

  • Why are we doing this project?
  • What is our goal?
  • What do we hope to achieve?
  • How does this project improve how we serve students?

2) Articulate what success will look like

  • What are our expectated results?
  • What are our desired outcomes?

3) Gather Data and Analyze

  • Is there data that already exists to inform our project?
  • Do we need to collect new or additional data?
  • What does the data tell us?
  • What does the data reveal about how well the current situation matches our desired outcomes?

4) Use of Results

  • The most important part of the assessment process is ACTION !
  • What changes will you make based on what you have found through data collection and analysis?

5) Documentation

  • Capture project goals, results, and use of results.
  • Documentation improves communication & understanding of our work.
  • Projects “living in our head” can now be shared and showcased.
  • Create a library of assessment results to inform decision making  & planning.

5) Reassess

  • Reassess to see the effectiveness of the changes you made.
  • If results are still not living up to your expected/desired outcomes, additional or alternate changes may be needed.
