Drew H. Gitomer
Gitomer’s current research interests include policy and evaluation issues related to teacher education, licensure, induction, and professional development. Current studies are geared towards enhancing the validity base for teacher licensure assessments (Praxis TM )as well as advanced certification of teacher assessments (National Board for Professional Teaching Standards). From 1991 to 1995, Gitomer was the project codirector for SEPIA, Science Education through Portfolio Instruction and Assessment, which was funded by the National Science Foundation and the University of Pittsburgh. In 1991–92, he served as project director for Assessments in Science Education, which was funded by the National Science Foundation with Rutgers University. He also was project codirector of Arts PROPEL, a portfolio assessment effort involving middle and high school teachers and students in music, visual arts, and writing. In addition, Gitomer led an effort to develop an interactive video-based intelligent tutoring system to help users develop skill in technical troubleshooting of aircraft hydraulic systems. The system was designed to assess and improve users' mental models of aircraft systems, troubleshooting strategies, and procedural problem-solving skills by providing them with guided opportunities to engage in simulated troubleshooting activity.

depend, for their most effective implementation, on a thorough staff development program for be to reduce the total cost of special education in wyoming.
An Analysis of The Modified Census Based Special Education Program
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY In May 1997, MAP recommended to the State of Wyoming a "Cost-Based Block Grant" for school finance. That recommendation has subsequently been adopted. As part of its proposal, MAP recommended that the State of Wyoming eventually move towards the adoption of a modified "census-based" funding mechanism for special education. This report attempts to initiate a discussion about how such a mechanism might be implemented. A modified census-based special education finance system, integrated with regular education finance, should be designed to improve the outcomes of Wyoming's special education and regular education programs, and may result in reduced costs of special education as well. If realized, these reduced costs will not stem from reduced services provided to children with disabilities. Rather, they will result from the fact that the regular education program funded in the basic block grant is intended to deliver educational services in a seamless fashion, whereas some of these services were previously delivered in a separate special education program. The elementary school prototypical model, adopted by the Wyoming Legislature and now signed into law by the Governor, included $152,514 per prototypical elementary school (or $530 per pupil in total enrollment), estimated to be the current (1995-96) average cost of special education in the state. The specific proposals to implement a special education finance system, when developed by the Wyoming Department of Education, will be a substitute, not an addition to, this current average expenditure. A modified census-based special education finance system will re-allocate this $152,514. Data eventually collected may support later recommendations to vary this initial total somewhat, although we have no present reason to believe this will be the case. For purposes of illustration, this report assumes the total will be unchanged.

    Action Research
    Action research is a strategy for learning more about the teaching and learning process, often in collaboration with other educators. With this learning design, teachers decide what questions are important to examine in order for them to gain insight into what is happening into their classroom. While the inquiry process is structured, it is not as formal as other forms of research and can provide teachers with valuable information in improving their practice. The articles and web sites below describe the value of action research, outline processes to use, and provide examples of action research projects in different classrooms across the U.S.

The Professional Leave Committee met bi- monthly and monitored individual professional development requests. Curriculum and assessment teams continued to refine district-wide assessments. The district staff development plan was revised and submitted to the Professional Teaching Standards Board. The NCA staff development plans at each school were updated to support the NCA Action Plans. Structured professional development for new teachers including an orientation and induction seminar and core classes was implemented. The database for recording district-wide professional development was expanded. A record of PTSB credits earned by certified staff was submitted to the Professional Teaching Standards Board.

    Wyoming second in per-pupil spending
    By HOLLY STROTHER Star-Tribune staff writer CASPER - CST - When it comes to providing money and other resources to its schools, Wyoming ranks second in the nation, spending $8,657 per student in adjusted dollars, according to a national education report released Monday. But the state ranked dead last in terms of improving the quality of its teachers, receiving an F grade for the third straight year, Education Week's Quality Counts 2002 report found. New Jersey led the country in per-pupil spending last year, with $9,362 in dollars that reflect regional cost differences. The lowest-ranked state was Arizona, with per-pupil spending of $5,006. The U.S. average was $7,079, according to the report. For the first time in at least six years, the state got an A on its report card in adequacy of resources, which "accounts for both the number of students below an 'adequate' level of spending and the degree to which spending on those students falls short of adequate," according to the report. State Sen. Charlie Scott, R-Casper, said he believed the F grade was a fair assessment of two of the three areas of teacher improvement: Teacher's salaries are not enough for the state to recruit more high-quality teachers, he said, and the Wyoming Professional Teachers Standards Board policies are complicated and rigid to the detriment of the education system here.
