SRI is developing classroom assessments to help teachers diagnose student learning in chemistry.
With the Erikson Institute, SRI is exploring the promise of Collaborative Math in promoting math learning in Head Start centers in the city of Chicago.
Improving classroom assessment is potentially one of the most powerful ways to improve student achievement. To realize such gains, however, teachers must use classroom assessments formatively, that is, to adjust and improve instruction.
DIGS engages students in looking at real data about climate change to differentiate between possible greenhouse gas and urban heat island impacts.
DIGERS provided teachers with adaptable curricular exemplars about environmental restoration.
