CADRE is pleased to announce 3 new resources produced by CADRE partners and/or DR K-12 PIs with support from CADRE:

Evaluation in DR K-12 Projects: Options

November 2012

Each DR K-12 project has formative and summative evaluation, which are different from the project’s own R&D activities and instead should support and measure the effectiveness of those activities. This paper discusses evaluation options for investigators and evaluators to consider.

 From Dissemination to Knowledge Use: Options for DR K-12

November 2012

To foster knowledge use among policy makers or practitioners requires a substantial effort that invests in sustained interaction and enlists a range of supports for the prospective knowledge users. This paper discusses some options for more effective dissemination efforts that could lead to knowledge use.
