Jared Boyce

Education Researcher, SRI Education

Jared Boyce, Ph.D., is a quantitative education researcher specializing in using adult and student data to better understand instructional practices, education leadership, and data use in schools. He has firsthand experience building researcher-practitioner partnerships that empower educators in collecting, interpreting, and taking action on their own data through sustainable processes and improvement science. Boyce’s expertise encompasses mixture modeling, analyzing state and national data sets, evaluation methods, and learning analytics.

Boyce received the 2016 Advanced Studies of National Databases Outstanding Dissertation Award from the American Educational Research Association and the 2016 Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Award in Education and Leadership Strategy for his research on education leadership.

Boyce received his Ph.D. in education leadership from Teachers College, Columbia University and his B.S. in symbolic systems, M.A. in philosophy, and M.A. in education from Stanford University.
