Education & learning
SRI Education reduces barriers and optimizes outcomes for students of all ages and backgrounds. Our research teams work with federal, state, foundation and commercial partners to improve teaching, education policies and student learning.
We do this by conducting high-quality research, supporting use of data and evidence, and developing tools that improve teaching and accelerate and deepen learning. We integrate our expertise in content, populations and research methods to produce equity-focused and research-based insights.

The smartest people investment for future payback is a child’s education. Yet data continue to show opportunity gaps for underserved populations, those in poverty, and students of color. SRI Education works to strengthen the impact and broaden the reach of effective teaching and learning interventions, policies, and programs that will ensure an equitable education for all students.

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 the many opportunities for growth. I am constantly challenged to learn new things on the job, whether it’s from my talented colleagues or from complex project work.
Education Research Associate
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.
