The quality school portfolio qsp

The Quality School Portfolio (QSP)

  • Without tools to investigate and understand results, more testing will not impact educational practice

  • Software for use by educators to organize, collect, interpret, and respond to complex data

  • UCLA, OERI, Stuart, and Joyce Foundation support

Qsp goals

QSP Goals

  • Transform test and other results into usable, actionable form

  • Create coherent information structure for all members of the educational community (policymakers, administrators, teachers, and parents)

  • Encourage using information as the basis for making decisions about educational options and services

  • Raise capacity and efficacy of educators

  • Communicate findings in intuitive displays

Continuing Research: A Sample of Impact Questions

  • Who is helped? What kinds of schools, teachers, and students? How do experience, beliefs, knowledge condition impact?

  • Do administrative practices change at school, district and board levels?

  • What happens in classrooms? Is student growth affected? For how long? What kind of combination of information is needed (CRT/NRT, process)?
