SWIFT-FIT Data Collection Complete
Question: What takes 32 assessors 73 days to complete?
Answer: 81 SWIFT-FIT assessments!
In the short span from mid-March to the end of May, 32 trained assessors bustled all over the country to complete 81 SWIFT-FIT assessments. SWIFT-FIT—Fidelity of Implementation Tool—documents the extent to which a school and LEA are implementing the SWIFT framework. Congratulations to each and every SWIFT partner school! We recognize the challenge of hosting an assessor, gathering data and materials, finding classroom substitutes, rearranging schedules and setting interview times, and preparing for a full-day assessment. Thank you for committing to this endeavor. We will see you again next spring to track all the great progress you are making!
