EVALUATIONS IN oNLINE sURVEY FORMAT

TO  COMPLETE ONLINE TO INSTANTLY RECEIVE RESULTS (INCLUDING AN EVALUATION SCORE)

These evaluations can be used by an educational leader. The evaluations are in an online survey format so that results (with a calculated score) are automatically sent to you as soon as you complete the evaluation:

Educational Leader’s Evaluation of Data System/Report Tool

Educational Leader’s Evaluation of Site’s Data Use Climate

Educational Leader’s Evaluation of Data Users’ (i.e., Staff’s) Needs

To get a clearer view of staff’s perceptive, an educational leader can either (a) ask staff to complete these evaluations using the educational leader's  email address (so results are sent to him/her and kept anonymous), or (b) copy/past these evaluation questions into a new, single survey form the educational leader manages (using a tool like Google Doc Forms or SurveyMonkey) so all staff members’ responses can be easily aggregated. These evaluations are also in an online survey format so that results (with a calculated score) are automatically sent to you (or whoever's email address you decide to use) as soon as each survey is completed:

Staff’s Evaluation of Site’s Data Use Climate

Staff’s Evaluation of Data Users’ Needs

 

EVALUATIONS IN WORD FORMAT

TO  COPY/PASTE/MODIFY/USE WITH ONLINE SURVEY TOOL OR TO COPY/PASTE/MODIFY/PRINT IN HARD COPY FORMAT

These are the same evaluations as those in the previous section, but instead of an online survey format they are all in Word format, so educational leaders can manipulate their content as needed for use:

Educational Leader’s Evaluation of Data System/Report Tool

Educational Leader’s Evaluation of Site’s Data Use Climate

Educational Leader’s Evaluation of Data Users’ (i.e., Staff’s) Needs

Staff’s Evaluation of Site’s Data Use Climate

Staff’s Evaluation of Data Users’ Needs

 

EMAIL VERBIAGE

TO COPY/PASTE/MODIFY/SEND

Educators can advocate for their data system/report providers to offer research-based data reporting by adhering to each set of OTCD Standards. To help do this, educators can copy/paste the appropriate set of verbiage, modify it as necessary, and email it to the data system provider. An email is also provided for acquiring a data matrix from the district office to ensure data is entered and maintained in an accurate, consistent fashion district-wide:

Email to Data System/Report Provider (DSRP) for OTCD Label Standards
