Empirical Education is thoroughly familiar with the Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) RFP requirements. The evaluation component of any application process is pivotal to success. SEED reviewers look for grant proposals that use third-party researchers to conduct the evaluations to ensure that the results are both viable and reliable. A small number of score points can be the difference to making the cut. Our extensive experience conducting rigorous educational research and evaluations has equipped us with comprehensive strategies for success with SEED proposals. We are ready to work with your organization on creating a winning proposal for this competition. Contact us today to discuss options.
We are looking forward to becoming part of your winning team in the next round of SEED grant applications. Let us use our experience and success to improve your chances.
Empirical Education is pleased to announce that we have successfully written evaluation plans for four winning proposals with Georgia State University (GSU) (one in the 2022 competition, two in the 2020 competition, and one in the 2017 competition). Over the last five years, we have partnered with GSU to evaluate the Collaboration and Reflection to Enhance Atlanta Teacher Effectiveness (CREATE) 3-year residency program for early career teachers. Our evaluation provides CREATE with rich process and formative feedback as they implement, and summative research reports on the impact of their program on teacher and student outcomes.
