Project: NOLA College Prep is a network of schools whose vision is committed to making "private schools for free", for at risk and underserved children in Orleans parish. Their mission is to ensure that students are prepared for college, career and life.
Flux collaborates with TerraLuna to assist NOLA College Prep schools in evaluation fieldwork: survey design, interview facilitation and various analyses. There are two components, the first being "Boost" after school programs, based on performance measures and other factors of interest and the second being an evaluation of Hoffman Early Learning Center.
- Data Collection: 10 parent phone interviews & online survey with 65 responses
- Deliverables: 4 reports on communication, diversity, headstart and CLASS observation, plus a comprehensive general report. A final meeting with stakeholders was held as well, delivered on time and within budget.
“Flux collaborated with TerraLuna Collaborative to assist New Orleans College Prep schools in evaluation fieldwork: survey design, interview facilitation and various analyses.There were two components, the first being "Boost" after school programs, based on performance measures and other factors of interest and the second being an evaluation of Hoffman Early Learning Center.The finished product, 5 reports on Hoffman's programming, enabled staff to identify areas for improvement, which lead to conversations that lead to re-evaluated work-streams and more-clearly defined tasks. The communication report was the most eye-opening for both parties. The parent survey shed light on the positive parent and student culture of Hoffman. Being able to quantify that culture into numbers has helped the staff to better tell Hoffman's story. The entire process provided a feedback loop for teachers to think more about parent communication. We will be working with them on two more contracts again next semester!”
