The Center for School Evaluation, Intervention and Training (CSEIT) is responsible for coordinating the efforts necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of project activities and for providing the infrastructure to support that evaluation. Duties include evaluation tool development, data collection, the development of a data management system, as well as completing local, state, and federal reports.
Below are some of the evaluation projects we are currently working on:
Illinois Alliance for School-based Problem-solving and Intervention Resources in Education
CSEIT provides support for the evaluation of the federally funded initiative to develop response to treatment interventions pilot projects in the state of Illinois.
Funded by the Illinois State Board of Education, IS-TAC provides an outreach to students whose behavior impedes their ability to learn. The Illinois Technical Assistance Network project serves over 500 schools in the state of Illinois.
CSEIT is working with the Illinois Children’s Mental Health Partnership (ICMHP) and the Illinois State Board of Education on the evaluation effort of these two projects. Schools are required to incorporate social and emotional development into their educational programs and offer a comprehensive promotion of mental health awareness with the goal of enhancing outcomes for students.
