Through its research program on English Learners (EL), the Institute intends to contribute to improvement of academic achievement in reading, writing, mathematics, or science, as well as other school outcomes (e.g., graduation rates) for students in grades K–12 who are English learners. The long-term outcome of this program will be an array of tools and strategies (e.g., assessments, instructional approaches, programs, and policies) that have been documented to be effective for improving academic outcomes for EL students.
