This paper describes three levers that helped the funder, the S.D., Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, execute the New Generation of Educators Initiative (NGEI)…
Through an evaluation of career and technical education programs in Texas, SRI determined what makes high-quality programs sustainable and scalable.
SRI worked with two research partners and a 10-state consortium to enhance and implement a developmentally appropriate K–3 formative assessment to fit within and inform everyday classroom instruction.
SRI worked with two state consortia to design items for alternate assessments. This work advanced how the learning of students with significant cognitive disabilities is assessed.
SRI’s evaluation addressed implementation and institutional outcomes of work by 11 high schools and a partnering local college as they worked to establish seamless transitions for students and strengthen instructional quality as required by the Common Core.
A multi-institutional collaborative developed classroom-ready assessment tasks for teachers to gain insights into their students’ proficiency with the Next Generation Science Standards.
SRI conducted and prepared, Case Studies of the Early Implementation of Kindergarten Entry Assessments, to document the processes, accomplishments, challenges, and solutions of the four states and to share what they have learned with federal and state policymakers
SRI Education evaluated a coaching, support and technical assistance model to gather information on what it takes to support home visiting programs and staff so they can provide the most effective services possible to children and families.
