Connecting Research and Practice for Georgia Educators

WestEd works at the intersection of research, policy, and practice, bringing the methods of systematic inquiry to bear on real-world problems.

Currently, WestEd is comprehensively evaluating the impact of summative assessments in Georgia. Results and recommendations will influence the development of a comprehensive Georgia-specific state assessment system designed to support measurable improvement in student learning and achievement.

Whether you are looking for a lead evaluator for a new initiative or building your district’s capacity to collect and use data, WestEd can support your efforts.
