The Center provides program evaluation services tied to the CTSC’s mission of innovating instruction and promoting equity in PK-16 programs. Recent projects focus on the use of digital tools in educational settings, college readiness and retention, and data-driven decision making. The understandings generated through evaluation projects provide feedback to stakeholders and can inform the evolution of new initiatives for the larger educational community.
