We offer research and evaluation services to study the effectiveness of educational projects.

We employ a variety of research methods to assess the impact of an initiative, project, or program. For example, a program evaluation of a workplace employee learning initiative might involve pre- and post-test surveys and observations of meetings to determine whether the learning initiative was effective. Or, a program evaluation of a nationwide anti-drug campaign might involve a random survey of individuals across the country and site visits to assess local impact. These are just two examples among hundreds of others.

The goal of program evaluation can be formative–answering the question, “How can we enhance our initiative to reach more people?” Or, the goal can be summative–answering the questions, “Was the program a success, and for whom?”

We specialize in the evaluation of learning initiatives, especially programs that use technology to educate their audiences. Audiences can include anyone–from students in a school setting to adults in a workplace environment. If your program was designed to teach someone something, we can evaluate its impact.
