What We Do > Evaluation
We conduct evaluations of technology initiatives, from pilot projects to established programs, for partners at the international, national, state, and local levels. Our evaluation reports and recommendations help administrators, educators, corporations, and non-profit organizations make informed decisions about the directions of their programs.
CCT has worked for over a decade to evaluate the ambitious efforts of Intel Corporation to devise and implement professional development programs that will help teachers learn to integrate technology into their classroom practice. Beginning in 1999 with the initial Intel Teach® Essentials program in the U.S., and expanding to include the Leadership Forums, Teaching Thinking with Technology, and Getting Started programs in the U.S. and around the world, we have conducted surveys, observations, and case studies of these trainings, from teacher follow-up in the classroom to broad changes in schools and districts. We've drawn on our years of classroom experience to help Intel adapt its offerings to the realities of teachers' practices and classroom implementation in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. CCT evaluations help Intel to track and understand the international impact of their educational initiatives and to better advise national governments on how best to integrate these programs into national efforts for education reform. We also help local evaluators in countries as diverse as Chile, Vietnam, or Turkey devise evaluation plans that respond to and inform their home country's implementation of Intel programs.
