Ask the OEIE Evaluator

"Ask the OEIE Evaluator" is a regular series in the Tuesday Letter in which OEIE staff respond to your frequently asked questions about evaluation. Have a question? Email Kathleen Gary.

While we don't want to stray far from the developer's recommended program or curriculum implementation guidelines in order to increase the likelihood of producing the desired results, we recognize that many educators may face the tension of changing the program's content or delivery method to fit a particular need. Typical needs fall within population variations and program relevance or limited time and resources. More>>
