Curriculum Research & Development Group

The Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG) is an organized research unit in the College of Education at the University of Hawai‘i. Since 1966, CRDG has served the educational community locally, nationally, and internationally by

  • conducting research and creating, evaluating, disseminating, and supporting educational programs that serve students, teachers, parents, and other educators in grades preK-12; and
  • contributing to the body of professional knowledge and practice in teaching and learning, curriculum development, program dissemination and implementation, evaluation and assessment, and school improvement.

CRDG operates the University Laboratory School (ULS), a public charter school as its R & D laboratory under an agreement with the local school board. ULS provides a K–12 student population in a controlled environment where CRDG faculty conducts its research and development work. Additionally, ULS serves as a demonstration site for improving K–12 education, while providing a high quality education for its approximately 420 students. The students, randomly selected from among applicants to represent a broad cross section of the state population, provide real-world data on ways all students can succeed.

Since its founding, CRDG has been an integral part of the education community. A research model that combines cutting edge thinking with real-world application has continued to add to the body of professional knowledge while bringing a large cross-section of the education community into the research process.
