DEMILO (Developing Elementary Mathematics Instructional Leaders in Oregon) - a collaboration
of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, the College of Education, and The
Research Institute (TRI) at Western Oregon University (WOU) to develop
Mathematics instructional leaders in school districts throughout Oregon. CREA
is evaluating the program to assess student achievement
improvements and effectiveness of the online professional development model.
CREA conducts the process evaluation of Oregon’s Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) using a mixed method approach of quantitative and qualitative analyses. QRIS is a collaboration between The Research Institute's Center on Early Learning and the State of Oregon Early Learning Division.
Central Coordination of Child Care Resource and Referral provides leadership and technical assistance for the twelve local CCR&R programs serving all counties in Oregon. CREA, in collaboration with TRI's Center on Early Learning, maintains the database in order to: (a) conduct statewide and local child care referrals; (b) inform key stakeholders and policy makers; and (c) inform research projects at state and federal levels. This project is funded through the Early Learning Division of the Oregon Department of Education.
