Education Research Center

Texas A&M University Education Research Center (ERC)

The Texas A&M University Education Research Center provides research and evaluation services to a broad range of clients, including PreK-12 educational systems, non-profit organizations, colleges and universities, foundations, and government agencies.

Housed in the School of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University, the ERC has successfully completed research and evaluation projects for a variety of local, state and regional, national, and international clients since 2007, securing almost $7 million in external funding. Our researchers conduct formative and summative studies, utilizing a variety of methodologies to meet the unique needs of individual projects.

Employing qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodologies, ERC researchers have focused on an extensive range of topics (e.g., college and career readiness initiatives and programs, technology use in PreK-12 settings, out-of-school time programs in urban areas, international curricula, and STEM initiatives in Texas schools and universities).

Our team is committed to providing a high quality, broad range of services. We subscribe to a participatory, utilization-focused philosophy in our projects, collaborating with clients and stakeholders to design studies that incorporate an understanding of the contexts in which programs are situated and in which evaluation findings are used for decision-making and program improvement.
