eTech Ohio – Podcasts for Assessments Mini-Grant Program Evaluation (2011-2012)

The eTech Ohio Commission (www.ohiohighered.org/) contracted with Hezel Associates to conduct an evaluation of the Podcasts for Assessments Mini-Grant program. The Podcasts for Assessments program aims to provide professional development to Ohio public school teachers in the use of podcasts in classroom instruction, and provide opportunities for students to use podcasts as assessments when demonstrating their understanding of the curriculum.

This mixed-method evaluation, combining quantitative analysis of new data and qualitative content analysis of documents generated by grantees, aims to (a) evaluate the Podcasts for Assessments program’s success in reaching its three overarching goals, and (b) to produce recommendations to facilitate policy-level decision-making based on the degree to which grantees and the program as a whole achieve those goals. A final evaluation report was completed in June 2012.
