84.215V - Partnerships in Character Education
|Program Goal: To help promote the development of strong character among the nation's students.|
|Objective 1 of 1: Support the development and implementation of high-quality character education programs.|
|Indicator 1.1 of 1: Partnerships in Character Education: Partnership in Character Education Program grantees will demonstrate improved student outcomes through valid, rigorous evaluations.|
Source: Review of biennial evaluation reports included in program files.
Next Data Available: October 2006
Data Validated By: On-Site Monitoring By ED.
Limitations: While all grantees are required to conduct evaluations, only those responding to the competitive preference for rigorous evaluations are actually conducting valid, rigorous evaluations. Thus, only a subset of Character Education grantees are actually reflected in the data collected under this measure. Evaluation results will be available after two years and at the completion of the each project.
Explanation: A subset of grantees evaluate their projects using either experimental or quasi-experimental designs. Evaluation reports will not be available annually. For each cohort, no target will be established for years in which evaluation reports are not due. The FY 2006 target is to set a baseline for the 2004 cohort, the FY 2007 target is to set a baseline for the 2005 cohort, and the FY 2008 target is to set the baseline for the 2006 cohort. Future year targets will be established as baseline data become available. Because of different grant cohorts, information will be available each year for one or more cohorts, but data related to each cohort are collected biennially.
