The Educational Reform Rating Rubric is an evaluation tool created to manage, organize, and integrate qualitative and quantitative data collected on school reform programs. The rubric is based on seven key indicators, including collective participation, principal leadership, teacher and instructional quality, parental involvement, student outcomes, project support, and school environment. The Educational Reform Rating Rubric holds promise for effectively and efficiently integrating the complex data that result from real-world school reform evaluations.
