VIQI Follow-up Coach Survey

April 2021

FOLLOW-UP COACH SURVEY



The purpose of the Coach Follow-up Survey is to collect information on characteristics of coaches that are theorized to affect implementation as indicated in the VIQI Project conceptual model, as well as coach experiences with implementing the professional development component of the VIQI Project. This attachment includes the following: (a) the follow-up survey, and (b) communication to coaches regarding this survey.











A. Introduction

Thank you for participating in the Variations in Implementation of Quality Interventions (VIQI) Project. As part of this study, we would like you to answer some questions about yourself and your experiences as a coach. This information is crucial to helping us understand how coaches’ characteristics and their experiences as a coach affect the implementation of interventions to improve teaching and instructional practices in early care and education programs.

Your participation is completely voluntary, and you may skip any questions you do not wish to answer. You may stop the survey at any time. Your responses to these questions will be kept private to the extent permitted by law and will not be shared with your supervisor or other staff. There are no direct benefits to you for participating. Participation does not involve any risks other than what you would encounter in daily life. There is a small risk that your information could be lost, stolen, or misused, even though we follow strict rules to protect your information. The study team will follow strict procedures to protect your responses, and your responses will only be used for research and program improvement purposes. Your responses will be stored in password protected computer files and in locked research facilities. The data will be used only by the research team and other researchers bound by the same security requirements described here. We also may share de-identified responses with researchers looking at other education research topics who agree that they will protect your information.

Please complete this questionnaire within the next [X] days. [If PAPER COPY, INCLUDE: Once complete, please send it back to [ADDRESS].] It will take approximately 30 minutes in total to complete. If you have any questions, please contact your project liaison at [PHONE] or [email].


Thank you!

TEACHING SCIENCE

The next set of questions focus on the area of young children’s science education. We would like for you to answer the questions as best you can based on your knowledge and beliefs.

  1. Read the scenario below. As you read, think about the science you "see" happening in the scenario.

Shape1      

The class is outside on the playground. Sasha is still finishing her popsicle. “It’s so sticky!” says Sasha as her popsicle melts down her hand. “It’s too hot out here! The sun’s making my popsicle melt!” she says. Before Sasha can eat it, the final piece of popsicle falls to the floor. She squats down to look at it and watch it melt. “It’s makin’ a lake,” she says. Ben comes to see what’s going on.

No, it’s making a river, see” he points to a line of red syrup that’s running down the sidewalk.

Rivers are big. That’s too small” says Sasha, pointing at the melted popsicle.

A line of ants crawls towards the melting popsicle.

Look! The ants want to eat my popsicle!” Sasha says. “You can’t eat popsicles. That’s people food. You eat leaves,” she says to the ants.

Maybe they like popsicles better” says Ben. “Let’s find out”. Ben pulls a leaf off of a nearby bush and places it next to the puddle of melted popsicle. “I think they are going to like the popsicle better,” he says. The children watch the ants. Some of them move toward the melted popsicle.

Look!” Says Sasha, “one, two, three. Three ants are eating my popsicle. Nobody is eating the leaf!”

I guess they like popsicles better,” says Ben.

Thunder rumbles in the distance. “Oh no! It’s going to rain!” says Ben, “maybe the ants can hide under the leaf to stay dry” he says as their teacher calls them to go inside.

Cause and effect

  1. Read each scenario and answer the questions that follow. Choose the one option that best applies.

Shape5

Santana drops two rocks down the slide. One is big and white, the other is smaller and dark grey. He does this several times. The large white rock always flies off the end of the slide and tumbles all the way to the playground gate. The smaller grey rock drops off the end of the slide and doesn't go any further. "The white rock always wins!" he says.


  1. Which of the following could the teacher say to best help Santana understand the cause and effect relationship between the weight of the rock and the distance it travels?

1

What do you notice about the weight of the rocks?

2

Can we measure how far the rock went?

3

Why do you think the big rock is heavier than the little one?

4

I see you experimenting with the rocks. What happens when you go down the slide?



  1. What can the teacher add to the classroom to provoke children to think about the structure and function of different materials?

1

Adding an umbrella to dramatic play

2

Adding rubber gloves and mittens to the water table

3

Adding sponges to the science center

4

Adding seeds and a magnifying glass to the science center



Shape6 Camille notices a seed in her watermelon during snack time. 


  1. What is the best way for the teacher to help her understand that seeds are part of a system?

1

Cut open different kinds of fruits to find seeds

2

Read an informational book about plants

3

Cut open different seeds and observe what is inside

4

Compare and sort different seeds



Shape7 A teacher is guiding a small group of children in making dough by mixing flour and water. Charlie's dough is sticky and won't hold a shape. He looks at Maria's dough that she has rolled into a tight ball. Then he looks at his teacher and shows her his sticky fingers. 


  1. What can the teacher do to help Charlie experiment with the materials at the table and "fix" his dough?

1

The teacher can add more flour to Charlie's dough and help him mix it.

2

The teacher can give Charlie a cup of water and a cup of flour and say, " Do you think we should add more water or flour? Let's choose one and see what happens".

3

The teacher can say, "Uh-oh, Charlie! Your dough is too wet. Let's add more flour. What do you predict will happen if we put more flour in the dough?"

4

The teacher can ask Maria to help Charlie "fix" his dough.

Shape8

The children are interested in elephants. The teacher wants to help the children understand that elephants move their big ears to help them stay cool.


  1. Which of the following would be the best way for children to explore the structure and function of the elephants' ears?

1

Taking a field trip to the zoo to observe elephants flapping their ears

2

Watching videos of elephants in the wild flapping their ears and pausing the video to ask children questions like, "Why is the elephant flapping his ears? How do you think he feels?"


3

Using different sized paper plates as fans

4

Building elephant ears out of paper plates and a headband to allow the children to pretend to be elephants



Shape9 The children are cleaning up the playground. They have a pile of rocks, sticks, and leaves, and a pile of plastic bottle caps and juice box straws. These two piles can serve as data.



  1. Which of the following is the best way to get the children to interpret their “data”?

1

I notice you have two piles. Should we put the natural things back on the playground and the plastic things in the garbage?

2

You have collected a lot of garbage. What do you think will happen to the garbage?

3

I notice you have two piles. Can we make a third pile using playground toys?

4

I notice you have a pile of plastic things and a pile of natural things. On the playground, which is there more of…plastic things or natural things?

TEACHING MATHEMATICS

The next set of questions focus on knowledge and teacher practices in the area of mathematics. You may not be familiar with all of the content in this section. We expect that people have different levels of familiarity with the questions being asked. We would like for you to answer the questions as best you can based on your knowledge and beliefs.

  1. Each item below has two different statements about a child’s showing a skill in the area of mathematics. For each item, choose the one statement that describes the math skill that a child is likely to learn first. If both are equally easy for a young child, choose the circle next to “Same.” If you do not know the answer, choose “Do not know.”
