UW-Madison launches program to address K-12 education initiatives

The Wisconsin Center for Education Research, which is a part of UW-Madison’s School of Education, launched a program earlier in February to address the need for education interventions.

The Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative aims to better understand and eventually improve how education initiatives work in pre-kindergarten through secondary education schooling, according to a university release.

The collaboration effort pairs UW-Madison experts with many organizations throughout the state—including school districts, professional associations, state agencies, education-based community organizations and Cooperative Educational Service Agencies—to speed up the evaluation process.

“WEC functions as a clearinghouse of evaluators so Wisconsin educators can more effectively access relevant expertise at UW–Madison,” said WEC researcher Robin Wirth in the release. “This structure allows us to respond quickly to evaluation requests, and also, to schools and districts that might not have the capacity for conducting program evaluations.”

The WEC focuses most of their effort on Wisconsin schools, but it also does some work outside of the state.
