Inspiration to Impact

Collab members have the opportunity to measure the impact innovations have on students by linking their change ideas and practical measures to the SSN survey. What criteria do you need to do this?

  • Survey response rate: Pre- and post-survey with a high response rate (>83% at pre)
    • Think about conducting your change idea at a high response rate site!
  • Sample size: Implement a change idea with at least 10 of the students that have/will have matching pre- and post-surveys
  • Timing: Implement change idea after pre- and before post-survey
  • Student roster: Have a list of students affected by your change idea
  • Practical measures: Collect student-level data measuring progress towards your goal (e.g. exit tickets, rubric, selected questions drawn from Network SEL survey)

What’s Next?

Save the date for our EXPO, SSN’s year-end event designed to bring together members and other leaders into one “room” to share solutions to our biggest challenges. Attendees will learn about the many ways fellow network members are innovating to create transformative experiences for students, share expertise to strengthen NYC’s education ecosystem, and explore the power a network can have for improving student outcomes. More details to come!
