Agency Information Collection Activities; What Works Clearinghouse Formative Feedback
Abstract: The Institute of Education Sciences within the U.S. Department of Education is proposing data collection activity as part of the What Works Clearinghouse Feedback Task. The task and its associated efforts are being undertaken by the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences, and is being conducted by Mathematica Policy Research. The intended purpose of the Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences WWC feedback task is to collect feedback from users on the relevance, timeliness, quality, and ease of use of the products associated with the What Works Clearinghouse Web site. The results of the data collection will be used to inform improvements in ED program products and services for its customers. The WWC provides educators, policymakers, and the public with a central and trusted source of scientific evidence of what works in education.
From the What Works Clearinghouse website: “For nearly a decade, the WWC has been a central and trusted source of scientific evidence for what works in education to improve student outcomes.”
The What Works Clearinghouse has been collecting information on our children for ten years. In the last ten years the current system of education has failed to properly educate every child in America.
Providing every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that discovers, develops, and directs their gifts and talents is what works.
Agency Information Collection Activities; Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program Annual Performance Report
Abstract: This is a revision of the Child Care Access Means Parent In School Program Annual Performance Report. This report provides the Department of Education with information needed to evaluate a grantee’s performance and compliance with program requirements in accordance with the program authorizing statute. The data collected is aggregated to provide national information on project participants and the results demonstrated by program outcomes.
Why spend tax dollars to collect information on project participants when evaluating program effectiveness?
Our children deserve an excellent education and our tax dollars should provide them with one.
