CREP: Center for Research in Educational Policy

The Center for Research in Educational Policy (CREP) is a non-profit research center located at the University of Memphis and is designated as a State of Tennessee (TN) Center of Excellence. Since 1989, we have been dedicated to improving student learning by serving as a valuable resource in PreK-12 educational research, evaluation, and consultation. We also provide services in instrument development and assessment to institutions of higher education, non-profits, community organizations, and businesses. As national education policy shifts, CREP strives to provide up-to-date, relevant data useful to schools, universities, and policy makers. As a long-term contributor to the educational research field, CREP has extensive experience in research design, execution, and program implementation evaluation across the country including K-12, higher ed, museum, district, statewide, and multi-state programs. 

Specialty areas include: Research and evaluation design; instrument development and validation; experience conducting large scale evaluations in over 37 states; a fully staffed statistics department with experience managing and analyzing large data sets of both qualitative and quantitative tools; experience developing and running quasi-experimental and Randomized Control Trials (RCTs); and knowledge of What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) procedures and standards. (Read more about CREP's history and services)
