Senior Researcher, SRI Education

Ashley Campbell has experience in both qualitative and quantitative research with a focus on pre-K–12 reform, teacher development, and policy analysis. Across studies, she develops data collection instruments, conducts case studies, analyzes surveys and other quantitative data, and coauthors reports.

Campbell’s work focuses on providing clients with policy relevant information to shape teacher preparation and school reforms. Her work includes projects to support school reform, such as the Bridging the Equity Gap project, which focuses on underrepresented students in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, the Chicago Comprehensive High School Evaluation, and the California Linked Learning Initiative. Campbell also studies teacher quality from all aspects, including teacher preparation under two Teacher Quality Partnership grant programs and the Bechtel Foundation’s New Generation of Educators Initiative, and the Teaching and California’s Future project. Her work in studying professional development includes an evaluation of the National Writing Project professional development as well as a study of the New Leaders Emerging Leaders program, the Evaluation of the Massachusetts’ Human Capital Management Initiative, and an evaluation of Teacher Incentive Fund grantees. Campbell has also contributed to research in education funding, including research on California’s Local Control Funding Formula, a study of District Capacity in Arts Education, and the Understanding Federal Uses of Education Funding study that includes analyses of Title I, Title II, Title III, Title IV, IDEA, and CARES Act funds.

Campbell has a strong focus on helping educators understand and apply education research. As a project leader in the Regional Educational Lab for Appalachia, she provides technical assistance and coaching to high schools in Eastern Kentucky using continuous improvement strategies to strengthen program implementation. Additionally, Campbell has presented at a number of workshops in the region to help educators apply evidence-based practices to project design, data collection, and implementation for college and career readiness.

Campbell has extensive experience managing large-scale research projects to focus not only on high-quality research but also timely and efficient delivery of information to clients. She has managed a number of projects funded by the U.S. Department of Education, including the Colorado Collaborative Strategic Reading i3 evaluation, an evaluation of the New Leaders’ Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) grant, the Teacher Incentive Fund Evaluation for cohorts 1 and 2, and most recently the study of District and School Uses of Federal Education Funding and the evaluation of Rocketship Education’s Charter Schools Program grant.
