More on Pilot Results
The pilot evaluation is part of a growing portfolio of research on Success at the Core. Currently, a sustainability study is underway to assess the extent to which use of the materials continues in sites beyond the pilot phase. Results will be available at the end of 2010. A study is also planned that will focus on the impact of the materials on teachers’ classroom practice and on student outcomes.
