Evaluation and Research


CRDG’s faculty and staff include a small cadre of program evaluators with responsibilities for conducting evaluations of their curriculum-developer colleagues’ programs and of programs developed and implemented externally. Over a period of nearly 40 years, the studies have addressed programs in all major K–12 school subjects, as well as other subjects such as art and nutrition; have addressed schooling at all levels from kindergarten through graduate school; have addressed social service programs in addition to education; and have involved collecting data in many American states. Since 1981, the reports of nine of CRDG’s evaluation studies have been award winners in the American Educational Research Association’s Division H (Research, Evaluation, and Assessment in Schools) Excellent Publications Competition; another was profiled in 2010 as an exemplary evaluation in the American Journal of Evaluation. The results of a number of the studies have been published in refereed local and national professional journals.
