We believe in the power of individuals and organizations to effect positive change--change that impacts students, teachers and communities. To that end, we:
conduct systematic inquiry that informs decision-making and strengthens organizational capacity
collaborate closely with our clients to understand their information needs and to develop responsive, targeted data collection and analysis strategies
identify the most effective and efficient means to gather information from the most relevant sources, in a timely manner – all while minimizing the burden that our studies may impose on individuals and organizations who are juggling their own time constraints, internal and external (from funders and others), and other stresses.
