Designing and Implementing Teacher Evaluation Systems (2011)
Including presentations and a webinar, these materials are from a teacher evaluation systems institute at which nearly 50 state education leaders convened in New Orleans, Louisiana, on July 27–28, 2011. Participants engaged in sessions led by experts in the field, learned about the progress and challenges of other states, and discussed with their colleagues the steps their respective states need to take to implement a comprehensive teacher evaluation system. They also had the opportunity to meet with nationally recognized educators and researchers—Charlotte Danielson, Laura Goe, and Lynn Holdheide—to learn about best practices and current work in the area of teacher evaluation systems.

Dissemination Self-Inventory (2002)
The self-inventory is a planning tool designed to help those involved in research and development projects do a better job of bridging the gap between the creation of disability research outcomes and their use. The self-inventory asks a series of questions about your organization and your project plans. By answering the questions and using a simple rating scale, you can assess the effectiveness of your intended dissemination strategies, identify strengths and weaknesses, and revise your plans as needed. Following the questions, a scoring guide is provided with resources to help with dissemination planning.
