The Center for Research and Reform in Education (CRRE) is a research center in the Johns Hopkins School of Education. Our goal is to improve the quality of education for children through high-quality research and evaluation studies that merge traditional program evaluation methodology with the trends and demands of the current education industry.
We believe that educators want and benefit greatly from evidence. CRRE staff work to design studies that are scientifically rigorous, affordable, and consistent with the funding organization’s objectives. Our clients include school districts, curriculum developers, higher education institutions, advocacy organizations, and educational nonprofits.
We work with everyone from small organizations, to evaluate small-scale initiatives, to some of the largest school districts and curriculum publishers in the U.S., to evaluate districtwide educational programs and highly popular curriculum packages. Our staff takes great interest and pride in adapting studies to optimally meet clients’ needs, timelines, and budgets.
We offer comprehensive evaluation services ranging from qualitative case studies to rigorous mixed-methods efficacy studies involving highly sophisticated quantitative analyses. Many of our studies are designed to meet the standards for educational research as outlined by the What Works Clearinghouse and Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
CRRE specializes in mixed-methods evaluations, bringing years of experience and special expertise to integrate qualitative and quantitative data sources to deliver the most comprehensive and accurate evaluation available.
