Highlights of Our Work with the U.S. Department of Education
Metiri has served as the external evaluator for several projects funded through the United States Department of Education. Following is a sample of these projects.
Investing in Innovation Fund (I3)
Metiri serves as a partner in research and evaluation for several I3 projects. Our work brings together our interest in innovation and our strong research background in developing frameworks for effective evaluation and research that help projects meet the requirements of I3 grants.
Fund to Improve Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE)
Serving as a strategic partner with National Commission on Teachers and America’s Future (NCTAF ), Metiri is the primary evaluator on the Teachers Learning in Networked Communities (TLINC ) project. TLINC is a nationally recognized initiative leveraging collaboration between school districts and teacher education institutions. The goal is to improve feedback loops that support the development of supportive networks that foster teacher retention.
Preparing Tomorrow’s Teachers to use Technology (PT3)
Metiri served as the project evaluator for five PT3 grants located throughout the United States. Using valid tools for evaluating results, Metiri was able to provide feedback to partner universities that assisted in the evaluation of project goals, and also contributed to plans for sustainability and improvement.
