The STERS measures whether a classroom is more developmentally appropriate, child centered, or adult dominated.

Anyone needing to evaluate a science based intervention in a preschool classroom.

Questions Guiding the vtMTSS Evaluation. VT's evaluation team developed a set of guiding questions for consideration by the three initiative coordinating teams. The state level teams held a "data review day" and used the questions as the basis for discussion. Along with a power point reviewing the reporting requirements and proposed evaluation, each team member received a notebook with all pertinent evaluation related documents for future use. (Note: the notebook will be shared with participants).

Team Functioning Scale: Evaluating and supporting the continual improvement of implementation teams. To enact sustainable improvements, team meetings must be structured, focused, and support meaningful communication and shared decision-making. The Team Functioning Scale is a 17-item online survey designed to capture overall functioning of a team implementing an improvement process. To better understand overall team functioning, the Team Functioning Scale provides team members with observable concrete examples of poor team functioning as well as exemplary team functioning. Participants complete a sliding scale (1-5) between the items to relate the observed level of team functioning for each indicator.
