The NET-Q evaluation plan has been integrated into the programmatic activities so as to be an integral part of this project. The evaluation plan has been designed to be thorough, feasible, and appropriate to the goals, objectives, and outcomes of the project. The evaluation plan uses objective performance measures that are directly related to the intended outcomes. 

We have chosen to use Daniel Stufflebeam’s (2000) CIPP Model of Program Evaluation as the overall approach to the evaluation supplemented by aspects of Michael Patton’s (2000) utilization-focused evaluation, a logic model (McLaughlin & Jordan, 2004), and Thomas Guskey’s (1999) Five Levels of Professional Development Evaluation.

The CIPP model organizes program evaluation via four evaluations: context evaluation, input evaluation, process evaluation (formative), and product evaluation (summative).

We emphasize the fifth level of Guskey’s approach, which links student achievement outcomes to particular NET-Q interventions and characteristics of interns, residents, and mentor teachers. In particular, the linking of Intern and Resident characteristics to student achievement can help improve the selection of students to enter teacher preparation programs and preparation of teachers.
