Hybrid Learning Guide: Organizational Self Evaluation

Self Evaluation Framework:

The Self Evaluation Rubric is broken into three (3) domains, each of which is broken into subdomains to aid in reflective program evaluation for preparedness.

This framework is not designed to cover all possible considerations, rather it is designed to emphasize practices recognized for having the highest leverage in a Hybrid Learning program design.

The Domains and Subdomains are as follows:

  • I.1. Preconditions
  • I.2. Access & Infrastructure
  • I.3. Capacity & Resources
  • I.4. Philosophical Alignment

  • II.1. Program Cohesion
  • II.2. Instructional Methods
  • II.3 Content & Assessment

  • III.1. Self Assessment
  • III.2. Refinement

Making the Self Evaluation Rubric Operational:

Self Evaluation Scale: 













Users will assign a value for how they perceive their readiness with individual indicators associated with a sub domain on the self assessment rubric. The scale score for the rubric ranges from a one to a four with one being the lowest or least desirable and four being the highest or most desirable (see image). As the user contemplates preparedness, the objective is that upon honest reflection for each question, users can score their organization a three or higher, otherwise a score of two or lower indicates an area where additional work needs to be done prior to launching a Hybrid Learning Program. In some instances, like those related to hardware and wireless access, the organization lacks sufficient readiness without a score of four.

The purpose of the rubric is as a developmental tool, informed by a recent review of promising practices, to support local planning for hybrid learning. How a school or district chooses to use this tool would be determined locally.

Please note that to assist in the self assessment, indicators have embedded resources or reference links when available. Most of these links will be to CDE resources; however in some cases they may refer to third party resources. As mentioned earlier, these are included as examples and reference points, and by no means should they be seen as essential or required content to be procured. In situations where the decision/planning/resources relies heavily on local context, the words “site based” will be written in the area for resources or reference links.
