A research alliance is a group of regional stakeholders who share a specific education concern. The stakeholders agree to work together to learn more about the concern to be able to make sound decisions to improve education outcomes.
The goal of this research alliance is to support efforts to narrow the achievement gap for Native American students and to build capacity to develop and rigorously test interventions that serve Native American students. Stakeholder groups to be specifically targeted for assistance include researchers, policymakers, district and school administrators, community and school board members, teachers, and parents of Native American students.
|Research Alliance members are taking an active role in addressing the achievement gap through formal reviews of research about interventions for Native American students, studies of English language acquisition for Native American students, and extensive secondary analyses of the linked National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and National Indian Education Study (NIES) data sets. These research activities and others that emerge will lay the foundation for the development of an independent, autonomous, self-sustaining Research Alliance that has the capacity to pursue its own regional research agenda, disseminate results, and acquire resources to sustain its own work.|
