  • NCSU Publishes Journal Article about Continuous Improvement Cycles

    In a recent Education Policy article, NCSU Faculty and staff highlight the ways in which they use continuous improvement cycles to bring to scale practices that have been shown to be effective for high schools in particular contexts. They trace the development of improvement science in education, and contrast this approach to that of traditional research. Co-Principal Investigator, Dr. Lora Cohen-Vogel, and graduate assistants, Ariel Tichnor-Wagner, Danielle Allen, Christopher Harrison, Kristen Kainz, Allison Rose Socol, and Qi Wang, discuss examples from NCSU’s work in Fort Worth and Broward County to exemplify their use of continuous improvement cycles.
