Homework Hotline collects data on every call. Every call begins with a brief assessment to determine skill at onset of the call (specific homework problem, unclear on entire concept, below grade level, etc.). Calls end with a student being asked to work the next problem independently as the teacher listens. The teacher collects information on resolution and mastery that is correlated with demographic information. Reports, summarized by any data field, include:
• date and time
• duration of call
• Hotline staff
• language spoken at home
• language used for call
• frequency of Hotline use (code name)
• skill at onset (-3 to 0)
• skill at completion (0 to 2)
• Free or reduced lunch participation at student's school (indicator of low income).
• NCIB status of school (federal achievement standards).
Compilations in any combination are available on a daily basis. Summaries are used internally to plan staff, language, and training needs. Externally, summaries are available to principals, Title I coordinators, and school districts, and are available on www.homeworkhotline.info.
