TEA's Program Evaluation Unit in the Division of Research and Analysis is responsible for evaluating state and federally funded grant programs.
The Program Evaluation Unit uses quantitative and qualitative research methods to assess the implementation and effectiveness of key state and federal grant programs. Evaluation results help policymakers and stakeholders improve student achievement outcomes.
Program Evaluation Goals
The goals of the program evaluation unit are listed below:
- The schools districts and charter schools funded under these programs
- Schools not funded for the program that can benefit from the results to improve existing programs or design new programs
- System stakeholders and policymakers who can use these studies to inform funding and program development decisions
- Agency staff in Texas and other states who can use these evaluation results to improve the design of education programs
- The general public
