The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction contracted with AIR to provide a comprehensive evaluation of its Culturally Responsive Education for All: Training and Enhancement (CREATE) initiative during its first three years of implementation. AIR employed a qualitative case study design to assess program implementation and to determine the effect participation in the CREATE initiative had on districts’ capacities to provide culturally responsive education and to implement policies and practices designed to close achievement gaps and reduce disproportionality in special education.
The authors of this report use high quality data from a large-scale school-level cluster randomized experiment to examine the effects of mClass and Acuity benchmark assessments on mathematics achievement in 59 schools in the State of Indiana.
As a leader in the adolescent literacy movement, Carnegie Corporation of New York asked AIR to conduct a descriptive study of the Alabama Reading Initiative in secondary schools, essentially to “tell the story” of how the secondary component of the Initiative has fared, especially amid decreased state funding for education in Alabama and the large-scale national and local attention to the needs of beginning readers. The report reflects the results of numerous interviews with students, teachers, school and state administrators, higher education faculty, and members of nonprofit organizations in Alabama.
The Cleveland Metropolitan School District and the mayor of Cleveland asked AIR to conduct an independent gaps analysis and to make recommendations regarding what can be done in Cleveland's schools and by its mental health and other community agencies to improve the connectedness that students have to school, as well as their mental wellness and safety.
This report presents the results from a seven-month study of charter schools in California performed by the American Institutes for Research (AIR).

The Texas Ninth Grade Transition and Intervention Program was designed provide supports to academically at-risk students as they transition into high school. Targeted students attend a summer program prior to their freshman year and are connected with appropriate interventions, as needed, once the school year begins. The Texas Education Agency contracted with AIR to provide a formative and summative evaluation of the statewide initiative. The AIR team employed a qualitative case study design to track program implementation and a multilevel propensity score matching approach to examine program effectiveness.
