Research & Evaluation Consultations

What to Expect

The Research and Evaluation (R&E) team at TLL works one-on-one with MIT faculty and staff across the Institute to support data-informed decision-making about educational issues and pedagogical practices.

If you would like to work with one of our R&E experts, we can:

  • Help you develop purposeful, measurable research questions and objectives.
  • Design a study to help you address your research questions and objectives.
  • Collect and organize pertinent data.
  • Analyze the data using relevant analytic approaches.
  • Interpret the findings to guide your decision-making.
  • Share the findings with relevant stakeholders, if appropriate.

Is a Consultation Right for Your Project?

We typically consult on projects with MIT faculty and staff when:

  • We have sufficient lead time (at least two weeks).
  • You would like us to help you develop concrete goals or research questions.
  • TLL staff would have well-defined roles in the project.
  • The project is focused on MIT’s educational mission.
  • The project has the potential to build capacity for assessment and evaluation at MIT.
  • The work requested requires the skill or expertise of experienced R&E staff.

If any of the above criteria apply to you or your project, or you’re not quite sure, please reach out! Please complete the form below, and an R&E team member will contact you within two business days.
