Research & Evaluation
EDDY supports schools and school districts with quantitative and qualitative analysis in research and evaluation. EDDY analyzes educational approaches, programs and processes to understand their effects on students, teachers, faculty, administrators and the community. EDDY also assists schools and school districts in establishing sound data analysis procedures, as a part of an evaluation process, to drive change toward increased student performance.
Inquiry models are used to tap into educational functions and decision-making processes. EDDY develops survey items, interview plans, cost analysis methods and other procedures that education organizations can use to monitor the success of educational programs or reform efforts. Research and evaluation services are customized to meet the needs of schools, school districts or other educational organizations. Techniques include interviews, observation, creation of survey instruments, statistical and measurement approaches, examination of academic performance measures and administration and reporting of results.
