Education

SPR has over 20 years of experience conducting mixed-methods education evaluations ranging from early childhood to early college for nonprofit and public sector clients. We pride ourselves in our long-standing commitment to equity in education, and bring an equity lens to every stage of our work. In addition to traditional evaluation services, we act as critical thought partners for our clients to help them utilize evaluation in order to advance their own continuous improvement and effectiveness.

Our education division aims to work in thought partnership with funders, policy makers, and education leaders to lift up learnings through rigorous research methods tailored to local and state contexts.

Project Spotlight: Evaluation of TNTP and Solution Tree in Washoe County School District

Evaluation of TNTP and Solution Tree in Washoe County School District

The New Teacher Project (TNTP) and Solution Tree are two research-based education vendors hired by Washoe County School District (WCSD) to support schools that have been designated in need of improvement. Over the course of the 2019-2020 school year, these vendors worked with 25 schools to improve school leadership practices, instruction, and student achievement. In fall 2019, WCSD commissioned SPR to conduct a study to better understand the implementation (pre-COVID-19) and impact of these vendors.
