Coordinating SLAQs with IOE and PEARS
- Do we need to complete SLAQs as part of IOE?
- Do SLAQs need to be completed in IOE comparison sites?
- If my IOE site is only doing direct education, do we need to complete a SLAQ?
- How do I turn in IOE site SLAQs?
- How do I turn in my IOE site LACs?
- Do we need to report on conducting SLAQs in PEARS?
Yes. Impact Outcome Evaluation (IOE) interventions should be multi-component, inclusive of direct education and policy, system, and environment (PSE) efforts. Whether you are doing site-level or district-level PSE, we would like you to complete a SLAQ for each site in which you are conducting IOE. This includes your comparison sites. SLAQ data will be an important part of our analysis of 3-year longitudinal data gathered through the IOE project.
Yes, to give us baseline data on the environment at comparison sites, SLAQs should be completed by school/after school staff at all comparison sites. This should be part of your MOU or informal agreement with the school site.
Impact Outcome Evaluation (IOE) interventions should be multi-component, inclusive of direct education and policy, system, and environment (PSE) efforts. Ideally your IOE intervention is not direct education only, but even if it is, you should still complete a SLAQ for all IOE intervention and comparison sites.
First, be sure your survey is submitted via Survey123. After that, send Amanda Linares (email@example.com) a copy of the answers and results page generated by Survey123 completion.
Turn in IOE site LACs via Survey123 only. Data from LACs are not needed for IOE.
Yes, conducting a SLAQ should be reported in the “Needs, Readiness, and Effectiveness” section of the PSE module. A job aid to assist in reporting SLAQs and other needs assessments is available here.
