SRI Education and faculty from the University of North Alabama (UNA) used design-based implementation research to iteratively revise and refine the design and implementation of the Collaborative Partnership to Teach Mathematical Reasoning through Computer Programming (CPR2). CPR2 is built on UNA’s years of experience providing middle and high school math and computer science teachers with professional development on how to use Python programming for teaching mathematical generalization. Through an intensive, 2-week summer institute and lesson plans using a four-step Instructional model, middle and high school teachers learned how to directly deliver CPR2-aligned lessons to help students learn mathematical generalization through novice Python programming.
Education and learning projects
Researchers at SRI International developed an AI-powered YouTube filter that finds educational videos for kindergarten and prekindergarten children, including math videos and reading videos.
Handle With Care 2.0 fosters a collaborative relationship between local first responder organizations and schools to identify and support K–12 students who experience trauma.
Evaluation of the Impact and Implementation of Classwide Function-related Intervention Team (CW-FIT) in Elementary Schools
SRI is serving as the independent evaluator to examine the impacts of strategies to scale CW-FIT on student engagement, academic achievement, and teachers’ use of praise and positive support, as well as the extent to which CW-FIT is implemented with fidelity.
In 2020, SRI Education researchers conducted a comprehensive study of the status of arts education in California’s K–12 public schools.
This is the first impact study of Data Wise, which supports educators in using collaborative data inquiry to drive continuous improvement of teaching and learning.
For the Child Find ACCESS project, SRI Education is implementing a community-based, tailored approach to improving child find systems.
SRI Education evaluation experts are partnering with John’s Hopkins University’s Center for the Social Organization of Schools (JHU CSOS) to measure the impact of its Skills for Secondary School Success (4S) course module.
Exploring the Relationship Between Continuous Improvement Culture and Afterschool STEM Program Quality
SRI researchers are using systems theory to investigate the implementation of continuous quality improvement within the system of California’s publicly funded afterschool programs, the state’s efforts to change organizational culture to support continuous improvement, and the potential effects of continuous improvement on afterschool STEAM programs over time.
