Research and Analysis
Our team’s research efforts center on the use of a range of quantitative methods in analyzing student assessment data, including sophisticated disaggregation in order to examine the impact of the CMU portfolio of charter public schools on student learning. While our team regularly produces analysis and reports regarding the performance of individual schools we partner with, and has been recognized as a national leader in this regard, we also share our findings regarding trends across the CMU portfolio, extent to which there are disparities in the performance of student subgroups and school models, and most recently the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on student learning.
Examining the Impacts, Changes and Innovations Schools Have Experienced During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Our office engaged The Learning Collective and Venn Education to examine the impacts, changes and innovations that schools have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. We would like to thank all of the individuals from CMU partner schools that participated in this project through surveys and focus group discussions. Their insights were critically valuable as researchers Adam Aberman and David Hartman investigated this very important topic and authored the final report and recommendations.
