Texas Education Agency (TEA), Austin, TX (2009)
EPI was contracted to assist TEA with the development of a plan to expand the scope of the Texas High School Project (THSP) Evaluation to include additional grantees as well as funds provided by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation (MSDF). As part of the project, EPI conducted a review and analysis of the original evaluation request for proposal, the incumbent evaluator’s redacted response, and MSDF funding priorities. EPI also interviewed various stakeholders at several funding organizations to assess interests and priorities. The final product was the creation of a report detailing five evaluation options and designs for TEA to incorporate into the existing THSP evaluation contract.
