In partnership with DPI, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative (WEC) continues to evaluate the Academic and Career Planning (ACP) process and implementation. This annual evaluation has been a critical component of DPI’s identification of necessary professional development and district support for ACP. Current evaluations focus on promising practices, infrastructural elements, and student outcomes.
Evaluating and refining your ACP program should be done as part of your continuous improvement process.
This toolkit, intended for district or building leaders, provides the following quality tools and guidance so you don’t have to “reinvent the wheel” to carry out an ACP program evaluation:
- Guidance around conducting an evaluation of ACP and for the effective use of the tools, including a sample evaluation plan.
- Question banks for surveys and focus groups of a variety of stakeholders:
The toolkit is based on educator feedback and produced in partnership with the Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Feedback on this Toolkit
If you have utilized any of the questions or the guidance to collect information from your stakeholder groups about ACP, how did it go? Please consider sharing feedback so that these tools can continue to be refined and improved for future use. Feedback can be shared via this brief online survey.
