tutoring pairs obtained enough experience with the tool to be able to say they liked it and found it useful in their work.
Response to Progress Profile
The Project hired Pat Campbell as consultant to create the questionnaires to enable pairs to respond to their use of the Progress Profile. She also developed a questionnaire to help structure our analysis of these two tools. Each coordinator then compiled the responses from her own program into one document from each program. Using the questionnaires thus enabled the coordinators to report on the use of both the Adult Literacy Volunteer Tutor Program Evaluation Kit and the Progress Profile.
In addition, two pairs from each participating program completed a more in-depth questionnaire on the Progress Profile. Each coordinator then chose one of these two for a case study as an example of her program's use of the Progress Profile (see Appendix B for the case studies).
Pat compiled the responses to the questionnaires and wrote a summary report of the Evaluation Project. The four coordinators then met as a group with Pat and with Liz Karra who was hired as the project's external evaluator. We spent a day discussing our findings about the two tools and a second day discussing where we would like to go from here.
The remainder of this report is a summary of our findings, our recommendations about the two tools, and our thoughts on future directions for program evaluation.
