We found that the blended programs were effective in providing teachers with an opportunity for learning on the job and collaborating with other teachers, and they influenced teacher classroom practice moderately and affected student learning to a limited extent.

Evaluations are designed to determine something’s value. They help answer such questions as: Is this program or activity leading to the results that were intended? Is it better than what was done in the past? Is it better than another, competing activity? Is it worth the costs? The answers to these questions require more than a statement of findings. They demand an appraisal of quality and judgments of value, based on the best evidence available.
