Author:U.S. Department of Education
Description: The second report of the National Evaluation of the Eisenhower Professional Development Program, Part B (State and Local Activities), a multi-year evaluation being conducted by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) under a contract with the U.S. Department of Education's Planning and Evaluation Service. The first report was based on six exploratory case studies of school districts conducted during the first months of the evaluation (Birman, Reeve, and Sattler, 1998). The purpose of that report was to obtain an initial description of the program and the issues that it faced in different local contexts. This second report describes the current status of the program, based primarily on data from national probability samples of districts, SAHE grantees (i.e., the institutions of higher education and nonprofit organizations supported through the SAHE component of the program), and teachers, as well as on data from 10 in-depth case studies in five states.
