Empirical Education assists the Instructional Research Group (IRG)

Starting this winter, Empirical Education will assist the Instructional Research Group (IRG) with their project, Teacher Quality Study: An Investigation of the Impacts of Teacher Study Groups as a Means to Enhance the Quality of Reading Instruction for First Graders in High Poverty Schools in Two States. The project, focusing on first-grade reading instruction in high poverty schools with large ethnic minority populations, will be funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The role Empirical Education will play in this partnership is to obtain student demographic data from IRG; to survey teachers; to enter, check, and warehouse data; and to provide data files and report summaries to IRG.
