Evaluating the Impact of the Student Success Toolbox

To assess the impact of the project, the project team is using the Impact Evaluation Framework (IEF) for teaching and learning projects employed by both the Office for Learning and Teaching in Australia and the New Zealand National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence (Ako Aotearoa). The framework examines:

· Reach (generation and dissemination of project outputs)
· Impact on teaching practice
· Impact on learners
· Impact on the project teams themselves

Also, as part of the project’s impact evaluation strategy, Professor Terry Anderson of Athabasca University (http://cde.athabascau.ca/faculty/terrya.php) will act as an international advisor on to the project. Professor Anderson is the Editor of the International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning, and is also the author of the award winning Theory and Practice of Online Learning book.
