Senior Education Researcher, Center for Education Policy

Raymond McGhee, Ph.D., a senior research scientist in SRI’s Center for Education Policy, conducts research and program evaluations on efforts to improve students’ transition from secondary school to postsecondary school and to the workforce. McGhee has worked on a wide variety of projects examining the role of technology in education, informal learning in out-of-school settings, and high school reform, and he has worked with states, districts, community-based organizations, and schools to plan and implement formative and summative evaluations. He has also been involved in studying recruitment, retention, and induction programs designed to prepare postsecondary students for careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 

McGhee is currently a co-principal investigator on National Science Foundation grant, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Washington and George Washington University, conducting a randomized experiment examining the implementation and the impact of advanced placement science courses on students leaving high school and moving into postsecondary studies. He is also the project director of an evaluation examining how digital video can improve mathematics achievement in six rural school districts in Southern Virginia.

From 2008 to 2014, McGhee managed the evaluation of STEM recruitment and retention activities in four institutions in Virginia, documenting implementation and tracking student impact. From 2009 to 2011, McGhee managed a program evaluation for the National Science Foundation examining institutional and curricular change in postsecondary institutions that had received grants to revitalize undergraduate computing education in the United States.

McGhee received his doctorate in education from the University of California, Los Angeles.
