Dear Project RENEW Members,
As part of the Research and Evaluation Team, we welcome you to Project
RENEW. RENEW is funded by the National Science Foundation and we
are accountable to this agency for an evaluation of the quality
and impact of the project.
In this questionnaire we ask questions about your
background and your ideas about mathematics education. Your responses
will provide important baseline data for the evaluation and will
be combined with responses of the other teachers in the project.
The data is for project evaluation purposes only. Please fill out
this questionnaire and bring it with you to the institute.
Again, thank you for your thoughts and time,
Sarah Hough and Niki Sandoval, RENEW Evaluators.
