The U.S. Department of Education has a requirement for an evaluation to assess the impact, strengths and weaknesses of one of the three Title II programs: the Partnership Grants Program. More specifically, the evaluation will measure the impact of grants in helping colleges of education, colleges of arts and sciences, school districts and other partners to work more closely together in order to improve the content and structure of the professional education offered to prospective teachers. In addition, if ED exercises the optional component of the evaluation outlined at the end of this SOW, the evaluation will also measure the impact of two to three of the most promising pre-service teacher education program models on the knowledge, skills and early instructional practices of newly minted, elementary school teachers from a sample of Partnership programs.
