Randomized Field Trials (RFTs)
AIR designs and conducts large Randomized Field Trials (RFTs) on teacher professional development for reading and math, and interventions such as Thinking Reader software and Virtual Algebra. Further, AIR helped develop widely applied standards for the quality of RFTs under the What Works Clearinghouse, and incorporates those standards in AIR studies.
