Investing in children is the smartest people investment in terms of future payback. We need to maximize the potential of students no matter what barriers they face because our society cannot be economically competitive if we leave whole segments behind.

Fields of research
Rigorous research, formative evaluations and deep content knowledge help you create solutions to high-priority educational issues.
I enjoy working at SRI because of my incredibly thoughtful and talented colleagues. Everyone is passionate and committed to conducting research and providing technical assistance that will ultimately improve outcomes for students across the country.
We work with you to develop and scale evidence-based practices by focusing on what works, for whom, how and why. Our experienced teams combine strong project management skills with deep technical expertise.
Research and evaluation
We discover and test the impact of policies, programs and interventions through early-stage implementation research, survey research, policy analysis, extant data analysis, and large-scale experimental and quasi-experimental studies.
We use data from online educational technologies to understand how students learn, translate findings into actionable feedback, and automate data collection and analysis.
We design and validate assessments using gold-standard methods including Evidence-Centered Design and Universal Design for Learning, and SRI technologies (AI, speech recognition, video-based analytics and multi-sensing behavior analytics).
We support sustainable improvement of national, state, and local education efforts through data-driven decision making, evidence-based practices, professional development events, and tailored coaching.
We apply rigorous R&D services and deep content knowledge throughout the product development lifecycle, including ideation workshops, early prototype design, and user and classroom testing.
