TRAILS Seeks Focus Group Participants

The TRAILS project to establish validity of the general assessments at each of the TRAILS grade levels is moving into a final phase. We now need school librarians to participate in a focus group to discuss how the scores from the validated assessments should be reported to provide the most useful information.

We are planning a series of online focus groups with 5 to 10 school librarians to be held in February. These will be scheduled to begin at 3:30 EST and are expected to last for about 1 hour. 

There is no cost to participate. Technical requirements are modest. You will need a computer with web browser and either a computer microphone or a phone to receive audio on. Each participant will be contacted before their session to establish their connection needs.

These are the scheduled dates for the online focus groups:

Tuesday, February 11
Thursday, February 13
Monday, February 17
Wednesday, February 19

If you are willing to participate, please complete this form to let us know your preference for date:

by Friday, January 10. You will be contacted later in January with details.

This is an important step in creating validated TRAILS assessments. We are very grateful for any consideration you can give to participating in a focus group.
