Past Projects

NYCDOE CSI Math Science Partnership Evaluation (2010 - 2013)

Working collaboratively on the initial grant submission stage, New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) (schools.nyc.gov) designated Hezel Associates as the external evaluator in their proposal applications to the U.S. Department of Education for four Math Science Partnership (MSP) projects.  Two of the four initial proposals were funded, with work commencing in fall of 2010.  Evaluation of the 3-year project is intended to (a) ascertain the quality of program implementation (primarily professional development for educators), (b) support federal reporting requirements, and (c) examine the efficacy of the Comprehensive Science Initiative (CSI) professional growth interventions.  Deliverables include a range of survey questionnaires; science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) knowledge assessments; and site visit observation protocols.  Our researchers are summarizing findings for formative use by the program managers and undertaking analyses of federal performance reporting measures to satisfy accountability requirements.
