Interactive video lesson plan for: Evaluating Family Engagement Strategies: Addressing Measurement Challenges

Activity overview:

Recorded on August 18, 2011, this was the eighth webinar in the "Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement" (FSCE) series. This webinar examined highlight promising approaches for evaluating family engagement strategies, address challenges in defining and measuring outcomes, and provide guidance for building evaluation into a family engagement plan from the beginning. By defining measurable objectives early in the planning process, it becomes possible to connect family engagement efforts to important milestones—such as increases in parents' understanding of how to support learning at home—as well as the ultimate goal of increased student achievement.

Evaluating Family Engagement Strategies is presented through a roundtable discussion among evaluation experts and will address questions such as: What are some meaningful indicators of effective family engagement strategies? What role does evaluation play in supporting the sustainability of family engagement efforts? What roles do parents, school staff, and other stakeholders play in these evaluation efforts? How would robust, ongoing evaluations help advance the family engagement field?

Featured panelists include:

Heather Weiss, Founder and Director, Harvard Family Research Project; Rebecca Maynard, Commissioner, National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance (NCEE), U.S. Department of Education; Kate Gill Kressley, Senior Research Associate, RMC Research Corporation; Eric Dearing, Associate Professor of Applied Developmental Psychology, Lynch School of Education, Boston College;
Amy Aparicio Clark, Project Director, Education Development Center, Inc.; Kathleen Hoover-Dempsey, Associate Professor of Psychology and Education, Vanderbilt University
