SECC staff initiated an interstate conversation requested by SEA staff from Mississippi and Alabama on internal program evaluation. A draft agenda was developed for the conference call discussion between SEA staff on potential collaborative opportunities to gain increased knowledge about states’ internal program evaluation efforts. The conference call was held on August 11 and was facilitated by SECC staff. Participants on the conference call introduced themselves and discussed current evaluation projects, challenges, and future collaborative activities. A date for the next collaborative conversation was scheduled for September 22. In addition, resources were forwarded to MDE staff from the Bureau of Program Evaluation that included information on a webinar for planning, designing, and conducting surveys, a webinar on strategies for ensuring high-quality, rigorous interview data, and sample evaluation report templates to guide the compiling and reporting of data results.
