Edstar Analytics has been evaluating grants for over two decades!
Edstar’s extensive and continuous experience has given us expertise in working with North Carolina education data. Our extensive experience conducting professional development and leadership training for educators, using SAS EVAAS value-added data, developing and authoring curriculum, identifying and aligning intervention strategies for students, and integrating the North Carolina Teacher Evaluation Standards, as well as years of published research in education reform, will enable us to bring a comprehensive understanding to the challenges of implementing programs and plans that are research-based and data-driven.
For nearly a decade, we have conducted EVAAS training for school systems. We understand file structures, and we know how to interpret standardized test data. Additionally, we are well versed in state and local policies that impact program implementation and outcomes, and we know relevant federal definitions for things that impact grants. We have worked with and understand mClass DIBELS data. We know NC education policies, graduation requirements, and data systems. We have been trained on CITI and have formal policies for handling confidential data consistent with federal FERPA laws. Providing both respected national leadership in teacher education and trusted evaluation services, President of Edstar, Dr. Lee V. Stiff and CEO, Dr. Janet Johnson, are well-qualified to implement an accountability framework to support continuous improvement and document the effectiveness of any program we are asked to evaluate.
Professional grant-writers are welcome to purchase the toolkit or wizards for use in writing grants for others.
Grant-writing has become much more competitive in the last few years. Our research-nuggets, links to data sources, and information about policies can help increase the quality and competitiveness of the grants you write. The resources can also help professional grant-writers work more efficiently.
The Wizards are created on demand and priced according to complexity.
Less complex Foundation grant wizards start at $500. They include a cheat-sheet of critical formatting requirements, relevant research nuggets with citations, outline for the narrative, and notes on eligibility, competitive priorities, and other pertinent information.
The Wizard together with the toolkit can increase the number of clients you can serve, while increasing the quality and competitiveness of your proposals.
Prices are the same as purchasing for individuals.
