High-quality professional and adult learning experiences are hard to come by. A truly successful learning experience is about more than content and delivery—it’s about understanding the specific context and needs of your organization and your learners. Education Northwest partners with mission-driven organizations to deliver customized learning experiences that engage, inspire, and mobilize adults. Our instructional designers and content experts will work with you to combine “high-touch” and “high-tech” approaches to match the learning formats you need—whether in person or online, in real time or on demand.
Applied Research and Evaluation
Our expert researchers and evaluators offer a professional, fresh, and independent perspective to help clients build successful programs. We work with you to identify and assist with collecting and interpreting meaningful data; conduct research studies that produce actionable results; and carry out external evaluations that help improve programs while meeting rigorous federal, state, and local requirements, including randomized controlled trials and quasi-experiments. Several of our researchers are certified in What Works Clearinghouse standards, and can ensure your evaluation meets these standards. We can also work with you after the evaluation to implement recommendations and ensure successful outcomes.
We take the time to understand a community, its students, and the social and cultural environment before addressing the challenges that prevent student success. Our consulting and professional development services are driven by schools and communities and based on their daily challenges and existing opportunities. This ensures that our training and work are relevant, actionable, and impactful. We will work with you to develop resources and provide services that meet your needs. Education Northwest can support your efforts to provide a quality education that prepares students for a bright future.
Education Northwest is the external evaluator for the our seven-year federal GEAR UP grant housed at our university. I have found their work to be top-notch. They are engaged, knowledgeable about the most current research and trends in education, solid yet innovative in their approaches, and easy to work with. The annual evaluation report they provide to us is so useful because it provides deep analysis of the effects and successes of our program, but also includes some very practical recommendations for continuous improvement.
