Unit 3: Evaluation and Progress





After creating you program, it is necessary to assess any problems you had throughout the year to better help you students. It is important to identify changes to your program to better meet the needs of your students in following years.


In a group setting teachers and college partners will collaborate to create a follow up for this program. Teachers will use their rubric to determine the success of the program and what areas they need to improve so that their students will better achieve the goal.



Impact - Did the students learn what you wanted them to learn? Are they more excited and knowledgeable about college?

College Partner - Did they preform as you had hoped they would? Would a different partner be better?

Follow up - Where do the students go from here? How will you build upon your program?

Extras - Are there any extra objectives that you would like to add? A literacy component based on the application or a math component based on a mock SAT

Use the rubric and reflect on how which goals were met to the level of outstanding. If some goals were not met to the outstanding level, determine why.

After using the rubric (seen in Unit 2 part 1) to assess the success of your program, take time to reflect on the goals you have and determine if the goals you set at the beginning are still the goals you have. Determine if there is a need to change the goals completely or partially for the upcoming year.




Having a one year program is good but, having a concentrated follow up for each year that builds on the prior year and meets other objects is of significantly more value to the students.


Teachers will work together to help create programmatic follow up so that the program does not end in middle school. Ideally, teachers will create a program that encompasses complete college readiness so that the students have no surprises when they are looking to get into college.


The procedure for creating a programs for additional grades is the same as creating it for one. You will need to redo all the steps for each grade. I have attached an example of a 6th grade through 12th grade plan below. Each year has new and specific goals to prepare students for college and to get them to be ready for each step of college readiness at the correct time. It identifies specific objectives and tasks that I believe are crucial at each grade level.
