Rethinking the MSP Innovation and its Influence on Fair Evaluation of Implementation


"Conventional professional development is used to prepare teachers to use a specified innovation, in the form of a program, approach or strategy. Most established models of the implementation of innovations also assume a specific program, approach or strategy. ESEA Title II, Part B MSP program participants in NY receive instruction in discipline content and supporting pedagogic practices and are expected to incorporate this information into their professional practice. In this session an evaluator and a project director present their experience in facing the challenges associated with evaluating a program where the teachers themselves are the innovation. And to discuss some of the evaluator's measurement solutions based on the data of nine years of MSP evaluation experience involving eleven programs."
