Resource Description

This resource addresses the topic: Programming.

Mobilizing for Evidence-Based Character Education (New)
U.S. Department of Education
Federal grants help schools organize and implement character education. With these funds, however, come several mandates. Under No Child Left Behind, schools must demonstrate that the program receiving the grant has clear objectives based on scientifically based research and undergo several periodic evaluations. Program staff involved in these rigorous evaluations may lack the knowledge necessary to assess the outcomes of character education. Many are also unfamiliar with evaluation vocabulary and the process and requirements of the Institutional Review Board. This resource helps project directors learn more about the scientific evaluation process. It provides eight steps to guide the director through planning and implementing. Appendixes present information on federal regulations, sample consent letters in English and Spanish, a checklist of evaluation activities, examples for displaying data, and a glossary of evaluation terminology.
