Miami University of Ohio, Oxford, OH (2010-2015)
EPI was recently awarded this contract to design and evaluate the TAH initiative across 15 districts in Ohio. EPI's work began by completing an evaluation plan and writing the evaluation narrative for the federal grant proposal. Since the award was made, EPI has collaboratively developed the teacher knowledge assessment and an instructional practice survey to assess the use of best practices, collaboration in PLTs, and student engagement. In addition, we will develop a classroom observation to further assess these areas. Each year, we will collect these data from Miami and statistically analyze the findings for significant changes in teacher knowledge and student outcomes. In addition, we will provide the federal annual status charts including conclusions and recommendations for implementation.
