Research Reports

This webpage makes readily available to the public the analyses and results of field, policy or program research documents recently created for or by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). These include significant surveys, focus group reports, program and policy evaluations, descriptive and inferential research studies, policy reports, literature reviews, and exploratory data analyses.

Research in this repository includes Colorado specific research results and the background or context of the research, scope and methods used in the study and its summary results. Those reports with particularly high quality features and potentially relevant outcomes to educators or policy leaders may be selected and profiled in a one page brief which is extensively distributed to both educators in the field and education interested leaders. Some research in the repository are more historical but focus on topics currently pertinent to Colorado education.

The inventory will be updated every three to four months with new CDE research products as they are developed. As these new research works are produced, CDE will also explore ways to import the results of this research into easy to interpret visualization tools in order to encourage further potential or personalized insight in order to improve student achievement.
