The TLSS Evaluation Framework
Systematic Data Collection
The development of an evaluation framework is the first part of an effort by the TLSS to systematically evidence the nature and extent of the impact that its services and initiatives have on instructional practices, on student learning, and on the culture of advancement and innovation in teaching and learning. It is intended that this practice become a habit as it increasingly becomes embedded in the educational and media development work of the service.
The Evaluation Process
During this first data analysis and interpretation process, methods to streamline the format used to collect and store data, along with methods to more accurately and efficiently sort and analyse data, are being noted for further development. This first iteration is already proving to be helpful in terms of determining what criteria will we used to prioritise the indicators that we chose to track and the data sources that we use to evidence them.
