Program Evaluations

Since its inception in 2001, OSPI’s Division of School Improvement has regularly contracted with external research firms to evaluate its programs. The primary purposes for program evaluations include:

  1. Inform improvement efforts at the local, regional and state levels.
  2. Determine short- and long-term outcomes and overall effectiveness of improvement initiatives.
  3. Identify improvement processes, tools, and products that can be scaled district-wide, regionally, and state-wide to improve learning, teaching, and leadership.
  4. Continue OSPI School Improvement’s commitment to transparency in reporting the efforts and impacts of state-level improvement initiatives.

Research firms conducting evaluations include Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO), Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (now Northwest Regional Comprehensive Center) and Baker.Evaluation.Research.Consulting (The BERC Group).
