When it comes to education, most parents would prefer that their children be instructed by the very best teachers. But how can parents determine who the best teachers are? Should parents have access to information from performance evaluations of teachers in their state?
HumRRO has conducted validity and reliability studies for the testing programs we serve. Studies in this area include alignment studies, DIF, standard setting, and estimating different types of reliability. In addition to test reliability issues, HumRRO has also conducted validity studies that examine relationships between test scores. In addition, we have conducted convergent validity studies with Pennsylvania's assessment and college placement exams.
HumRRO's approach to evaluating educational programs involves gathering quantitative and qualitative information to ensure a comprehensive assessment of key elements. We traditionally seek formative and summative input from relevant stakeholders using a variety of methods. Meet the team that leads most of our evaluation work.
