Evaluation Scope of Work: The SIRC will conduct evaluation activities throughout the year. Along with the Blackwater Principal and key staff, Kate Hamm will develop the data collection schedule. The data include baseline and follow up data from the DIAL-3, PPVT IV, Meisels Work Sampling Checklist and other assessment tools that the school staff will document throughout the year. Further, data also include teacher training information and pre and post surveys. Parents will also participate in focus groups conducted by SIRC as well as participate in surveys throughout the year. The process data will be collected by the schools and then analyzed by the SIRC evaluation team. The school staff will be responsible for keeping attendance, making and recording observations, anecdotal records, notes from parent teacher conferences, referral logs, screening logs, and for keeping records of incident reports. The preschool staff along with SIRC will gather the data based on the data collection timeline and submit reports as necessary. Evaluation staff will make quarterly visits and write observation memorandums. SIRC staff will attend at least one monthly meeting. The SIRC will also administer a stakeholder survey to the collaborating agencies. The SIRC will track project activities and participants and measure the changes found in the assessment tools. Parent surveys will also be administered that will document parents satisfaction with the program as well as offer information regarding individual student gains from the parent perspective. SIRC staff will process the data as quickly as possible and generate reports in a timely manner to provide feedback to the project. As soon as pre and post measures and program implementation data are completed for each site, data analysis will begin. Following is a task list that depicts how and when the programs progress will be monitored.
