Evaluation of the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy
Pittsburgh Public Schools, Pittsburgh, PA (2009-2011)


EPI was contracted by Pittsburgh Public Schools to plan and execute an evaluation of the implementation process and early impacts of the Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy, a new 6-12th grade school that is the product of three years of planning and research. Using scientifically-based research methods and measures EPI will provide program evaluation services focused on 1) the program in practice relative to its goals, design, and program theory, 2) the impact of design and process on the overall and the daily experience of students and staff, 3) preliminary impact on student motivation and achievement and, 4) preliminary impact on the ability of the program to attract and retain students in the Pittsburgh Public Schools.
