Strategic Education Research Partnership
SERP's mission is to conduct a program of "use-inspired" research and development, with a goal of developing, testing, and mobilizing effective programs and practices. Problems of student achievement, and the practices that support it, are at center stage in determining the research and development agenda. The work places as much emphasis on follow-through to link knowledge and products as on research. Much of the research is carried out in classrooms, where innovative materials, methods, professional development, and organizational supports are developed, tested, honed, and taken to scale.
