SAMPLE EVALUATION PLAN
Introduction Evaluation is a data-driven process.
Our school district has instituted a process by which staff collect and analyze data that will help in making decisions about which elements of our program are working and which need to be improved.
Data in this process is both quantitative (counts of things) and qualitative (narration of things).
Our quantitative data comes from professional development evaluations, surveys, needs assessments and network monitoring analyses.
Our qualitative data comes from informal conversations, meeting discussions, and observations.
There are times where focus groups or special meetings are called in order to obtain opinions, feedback and suggestions.
Process Evaluating technology initiatives in our school district is an ongoing process that involves some basic steps that are taken by members of the technology planning team, and external evaluators as needed for certain projects.
External evaluators may be contracted from the university, as in the case of professional development, or they may be vendor-related if we are evaluating the performance of network equipment.The technology planning team is responsible for monitoring implementation of the overall goals of the plan, as well as the implementation of each strategy and action step.
The team meets regularly to chart progress, identify next steps, and adjust the course of action if needed.
There are various ways to measure success and completion of each component of a technology plan.
Appropriate measures are used for each component.
Summary results from each yearly evaluation will be provided to the Board of Education, Strategic Planning Team at the Annual Review meeting and also through newsletters.
Summary Matrix Because there is not one instrument or one process that is used for evaluating a complex activity like implementation of a technology plan, a summary matrix is a useful way of representing the final data gathered each year.
In June of each school year, the technology planning team will submit data to the chair (or her designee) for compilation and analysis.
The organization will use this data to make adjustments in the plan, outline activities for the coming year, and acquire resources to accomplish the activities
The format for the summary matrix sets up the various parts of the technology plan to be examined.
Guiding questions assist us in evaluating the overall goals of the plan.
All together, the matrix is useful in helping us obtain a snapshot of progress on our technology planning initiatives.
Tools A variety of tools or resources are used to evaluate the progress and implementation of the various components of our technology plan.
These are listed in the right hand column of our Summary Matrix format on the next page.
