The First2 Measurement Team aims to support the coordination, collection, analysis, and use of meaningful data across the First2 Network (First2).
The team generally functions in an advisory capacity to support the data needs and tasks of First2 groups and members. For example, the Measurement Team supports working groups in conducting Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycles as well as facilitating coordination and communication between the evaluation and research teams to avoid duplication of effort. The group also supports the backbone organization at the Higher Education Policy Commission (HEPC) in developing data collection capacities.
Do you need help with measures in your First2 Network work? We are happy to help! Currently, the Measurement Team is helping HEPC develop a system for collecting longitudinal data on the experiences and outcomes of First2 students.
Measurement Team Members include Debbie Shaver (Co-Chair), Margie Darrah (Co-Chair), Caitlin Howley, Erica Harvey, Gay Stewart, Jade Irving, Jared Boyce, Johnavae Campbell, Roxann Humbert, and Sue Ann Heatherly.
