An Evaluator's Perspective on the Importance of Federal Support of the National Writing Project

Date: April 2008

Summary: This presentation prepared by Inverness Research for the National Writing Project's April 2008 Spring Meeting explains, from an evaluator's perspective, why and how NWP represents an important federal investment in the improvement of the nation's education system.


"There is a strong logic, and a high degree of leverage, to the investment in the National Writing Project," according to Inverness Research, an independent evaluation firm that has studied the NWP for 14 years. The report demonstrates that the NWP network is a national infrastructure that has made large-scale improvements in student writing.
