Evaluating Your Summer Learning Program

In addition to measuring student outcomes, evaluating your summer programming is important, especially for programming supported by ARP ESSER. In 2016, The Statewide Network for New Jersey’s Afterschool Communities (NJSACC), in collaboration with external partners, including the NJDOE, designed the NJ Quality Standards for Afterschool Checklist. In addition, the National Summer Learning Association created the Comprehensive Assessment of Summer Programs (CASP). Both of these tools can be accessed below in the resources section. Each resource can be utilized as is, or your summer learning team can use it to create your own version of the tool that meets your needs. The Office of Learning, Intervention, and Support is available to assist LEAs with creating their own evaluation tools.
