Grants to this Grantee
for a research-practice partnership to test theories of diffusion and scaled impact  
Jobs for the Future is a national nonprofit that builds educational and economic opportunity for underserved populations in the United States. With this grant, the nonprofit will work with 15 New Hampshire school districts to adopt assessments that call for students to perform a task as a means to measure their deeper learning behaviors. This work, which pairs researchers with practitioners, will benefit school districts by presenting an approach that can be readily adopted in other states and by introducing new theories about the spread of innovative practices.
