Capacity Building: Drafting an Evaluation Blueprint

OSEP Project Directors' Conference , August 1–3, 2016

In this large group panel session, staff from IDC and PBIS described their work in building capacity for and assessing state and district implementation of early intervention and special education practices. Presenters also discussed how they proceeded with evaluating the work of building capacity in selected sites. The presentation provided perspectives on questions such as: What does it mean to build capacity? What does it mean to evaluate capacity? In what ways can stakeholders use  the evaluation data to inform or improve both the project and services to infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities? After each project presentation, a state or district professional from a selected site discussed the opportunities and challenges they experienced in building and evaluating capacity and the valuable lessons they learned. This PowerPoint focuses specifically on the work of IDC Kentucky and input from the Kentucky State Director of Special Education.
