School Improvement Research
With over a century of work in schools and districts throughout the world, AdvancED collects and manages information that has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about continuous improvement and the factors that have the greatest promise for ensuring student success. For that reason, we have committed to an ambitious 5-year research agenda that will uncover the impact of accreditation on school improvement and student achievement. The objective is to provide the education community with research-based strategies, conditions, and behaviors that lead to transformative school improvement. A research team of academics and practitioners has already published two studies, Learning from Accreditation and District Accreditation: Leveraging Change.
Dedicated to both school and system improvement, we are proud to be able to share our depth of knowledge with the greater educational community. As a knowledge leader in the area of education policy and practice, we know our research will not only be a catalyst for positive change, but will transform the way educators approach educational innovation and continuous improvement.
