Quality measurements through research
Strategy Two: Stark Education Partnership will drive quality measurements through research, data analysis and evaluation support.
An important role for SEP is external evaluator. In this role, SEP provides metric and measure support, research and data collection, as well as data analysis for our partners and stakeholders. Our external status and experience in providing these services add to the reliability, credibility and validity of the results and reports produced. This rigor leads to evidence-based recommendations, stronger programs and the ability of stakeholders to use the results to support the continuation of funding, programs and application for innovative practices and programs. SEP’s dedication to high quality research and evaluation can be seen in the annual reports for Dual Credit, SPARK, Young Entrepreneur’s Consortium, Farm to School, and the Stark County Olweus Bullying Prevention. Stark Education Partnership will drive innovative and effective practices to ensure high quality educational options are implemented.
