Plus Alpha is client-centered; we offer adaptable flexibility to meet client needs. We apply a continuous improvement cycle to our work and see our clients as partners in improving teaching and learning outcomes.
We plan our work by conducting a feasibility analysis and needs assessment that includes creating a logic model to document the current system.
We do a quick pilot to ground our improvement goals and methods in prior research and practical field experience.
In partnership with our clients, we design and implement a rigorous research and evaluation study that links back to program and service delivery improvement.
We act by transforming rigorous research into actionable recommendations. Our research staff brings significant expertise and experience in qualitative and quantitative methods.
Our network of skilled and nationally recognized technical advisors assist Plus Alpha’s research staff and ensure that research results are relevant and applicable to improving real-world student outcomes. Our advisors include federal, state, and local policy makers; SEA and LEA leaders; principals, teachers, and parents; social scientists; and educational technologists.
