The paper describes how the evaluation team and University’s stakeholders stressed examining the more proximal outcomes, (i.e. knowledge gains, changes in pedagogical perceptions and implementation of new skills in the classroom) by participants, while the State-level stakeholders emphasized (and required) that student achievement measures were most important.
