Center for Research on Education Outcomes
The Center for Research on Education Outcomes was established at the University of Rochester in 1999 to improve the body of empirical evidence about education reform and student performance at the primary and secondary levels. Increases in education reform efforts in the United States have not seen parallel attention to program evaluation and impact assessment, leaving policy makers without the necessary evidence for improving decisions. In 2000, the Center moved to Stanford University.
The chief focus of the Center is to support education policy makers in their use of reliable research and program evaluation to assess the performance of education initiatives. To accomplish this objective, CREDO addresses both the supply and demand sides of evaluation practices with focus on the utilization of sound research and evaluation methodologies.
CREDO can provide valuable insight in the creation or improvement of systems that evaluate areas such as:
* new hiring practices
* new professional development impacts
