Solutions for Educational Institutions

If you are an administrator responsible for institutional research, institutional effectiveness, or quality enhancement, Creative Research Solutions can assist you in your efforts to evaluate your institution’s progress and improve the quality of its educational programs.

Creative Research Solutions really took the time to understand both our goals and the realities we would face in trying to achieve them. My previous experience with external evaluators had been a real struggle with an unwillingness on their part to make things work for the people involved in the program being evaluated and within a specified budget. In contrast, Dr. Tatum and his team have prioritized the people involved, set out a reasonable and achievable plan and taken enormous pressure off of me as a project director. They also embrace that fact that “things change” and have provided the kind of flexibility that my projects have required.

“Huge thanks to Dr. Shanesha Brooks-Tatum and the Creative Research Solutions team for your amazing work this year! We really appreciated your collaboration as we built out the Reboot work. We have greatly valued the level of professionalism and wise perspective you have brought to this work. In addition to your deep expertise, we have genuinely enjoyed working with you and the CRS team.”

– Celeste Jalbert, Former Senior Director, Programs, Reboot Representation

We can provide support for evaluations of individual programs, as well as institution-wide quality enhancement plans. If you have a new or existing program that requires evaluation, Creative Research Solutions can assist you in developing a plan that will accurately assess your program’s effectiveness and help you identify areas for improvement. We will support you through all aspects of the evaluation process, from preparing a logic model to producing a final report that is both accessible and rigorous.

Many educational institutions have a significant amount of data available, but may need assistance performing the statistical analyses required to accurately measure effectiveness. In such cases, we are happy to provide data analysis support as needed to address your institution’s needs.
