Applied Research & Program Evaluation

Studies of Pre-K to 16 Education

ARPE is actively involved in research related to initiatives throughout the Pre-K to 16 education spectrum. We work with state agencies, foundations, school districts, and non-profits that are investing in or implementing programs intended to enhance the capacity of educators to improve student outcomes. Our staff includes research specialists with expertise in early education and care, K-12 education, and higher education, who have experience working with funding organizations, educational institutions, administrators, teachers, and school support staff.

Our work reflects the priorities of our clients and shows a great emphasis on finding more effective means to closing educational achievement gaps and enhancing outcomes for underserved students. Among content areas, our portfolio includes a wide range of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) related projects. In addition to STEM, ARPE has supported a variety of initiatives targeting literacy, history, art, music, special education, student support, credit recovery, career exploration, out-of-school and afterschool learning, project-based learning, and student-centered learning, as well as comprehensive school redesign efforts.
