EDI has received a contract from the New York State Education Department to conduct research and follow-up activities with each of the 60 MTP collaborations:

  • Local Project Evaluation:
    Evaluate the project-related staff activities and outputs from each of the 60 school-agency partnerships in relation to their stated outcomes and those of the New York State Education Department, via document analysis, online/paper planning and data collection tools.
  • Student Data Collection:
    Collect individual student planning data and activities from each of the 60 school-agency partnerships.
  • On-site Data Collection:
    Conduct quarterly participant surveys, on-site document analysis, and on-site observations at each of the 60 school-agency partnerships.
  • Administrative Data Sets:
    Compare the information gathered from the field and online data collection tools with school and VR data sets, administered by the New York State Education Department and other sources.
  • Progress Reporting:
    Local and statewide project-related progress reports will be available to the 60 school-agency partnerships, along with the New York State Education Department, to assist with the pursuit of project goals.
  • Dissemination and Sustainability:
    Develop reports that summarize research findings and provide policy and funding recommendations to sustain potential effective practices. Develop training materials and a web-based video series to highlight these practices. Engage in statewide and national training events and professional writing.
