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
learning to use results qsp features
Learning to Use Results: QSP Features
  • Relies on external and internal sources of information
  • Easy access and display
  • Custom queries
  • Disaggregation
  • Report preparation
applying qsp
Applying QSP
  • Use for school monitoring and improvement
  • For distance learning assessment reporting
  • For distributed program evaluation (LA’s BEST; Artful Learning)
  • Disaggregation
  • Individual longitudinal records

How can the school focus on particular populations?

continuing research a sample of impact questions
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)?
