Through partnerships with respected universities, foundations, and think tanks, and collaborations with school systems across the country, NWEA researchers work to expand understanding and bring new insights to improve education and learning.
University & foundation partnerships
Our collaborations with university researchers address diverse education research topics. We focus on studies that improve the measurement of student learning, inform teaching and learning practices, and advocate for policies that benefit students and teachers.
District research-practice partnerships
NWEA has several long-term research partnerships with school systems. We work together to produce relevant applied research, improve the use of data in decision-making, and help K–12 education leaders tackle the most pressing issues they see in their schools today.
