Abstract 3 Title: Developing Practical Measures for Equitable Access and Quality

Outcomes measures help us take a longer view of what we aim to improve. These “end-state” goals are often more global in scope and data is collected less frequently. In arts education collective impact initiatives, these can measure changes in populations served, opportunities for arts learning, attendance, and student proficiency. To help us reliably know what progress we are making toward our outcomes, we need more frequent and formative process measures that monitor the program drivers. These practical measures should not be a burden to administer, analyze, and use for decision-making. This paper examines the development process of designing and adapting a set of measures that have constructs and items with a solid basis in the literature, good psychometrics (Cronbach’s Alpha, Factor Analysis, and Rasch Analysis), and are focused and adaptable enough for practical and frequent use by practitioners to improve their work.*
