Grants to this Grantee
for research and development of a student survey on becoming an effective learner  
The University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research conducts high-quality research to inform policy and practice in urban public schools. The consortium will conduct research and development work with select school and district partners to develop survey reports, protocols for data use, and training practices for its new Becoming Effective Learners student survey. The development of these tools will enable research on best practices that encourage academic mindsets, which constitute one of the essential competencies of deeper learning.
for evaluating the impact of a digital counseling application "miPlan" on contraceptive uptake  
This grant would provide funding for a randomized control trial conducted by the Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Innovation in Sexual and Reproductive Health at the University of Chicago. The trial would test a digital iPad application, miPlan, in waiting rooms of two Chicago Planned Parenthood clinics. The application contains information on all methods of contraception as well as a video on the most effective contraceptive methods. The researchers will assess whether patients who use miPlan are more likely to choose the most effective forms of contraception.
