Research, Evaluation, and Data

The Research, Evaluation, and Data (RED) team supports AccessMatters’ mission through the development and execution of innovative research, quality program evaluation, and responsive data management. With past experience in academic research, quality improvement and management, data system development, management and troubleshooting, and both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, the team is well-equipped to serve and support our diverse programs and communities.

In addition to supporting all AccessMatters programs, the RED team conducts independent original research and provides consulting evaluation services to a variety of partners, ranging from small local non-profits to large government agencies.

These Briefs are available free of cost, and are approved for further distribution and sharing.

Additional Briefs will be added to this list on an ongoing basis. If you would like a copy of any of the Briefs listed above, please email [email protected].
