|How users/participants can evaluate success||
The impact and quality of the support is evaluated in three ways.
Immediately or shortly after the support has been provided a questionnaire is completed by the participating colleague(s). This measures the perceived quality of the support on the day and is comprised of a mixture of multiple choice, short answer and free response questions.
Six to eight weeks later, an online impact questionnaire, which during which participants are asked to evaluate the impact of the support on their own practice, on the practice of colleagues and on outcomes for learners. This is comprised of a mixture of multiple choice, short answer and free response questions. Participants are requested to provide evidence to support their comments (for example an improvement in observed lesson grades).
Between three to six months after the support was provided, parcipants are invited to make further evaluative comments and/or provide further evidence of impact (for example an improvement in GCSE results).
|Follow-up activities and support||
