Our Work

REL West at WestEd serves stakeholders in our region by providing research, analytic support, and resources that increase the use of high-quality data and evidence in education decisionmaking. REL West works to bridge the worlds of education research and education practice and, based on our partners’ needs, our work takes several forms.

  • Applied research studies that address partnerships’ research questions.
  • Coaching and technical support to deepen content knowledge of our partners and to build their capacity to use data and research for improving student outcomes. This also includes helping our partners develop surveys, interview and observation protocols, and tools.
  • Workshops, trainings, and other events (either in-person or web-based) that support the use of data and research. Video or audio archives of many of these events are produced so they can be accessed in the future.
  • Ask A REL annotated bibliographies produced in response to stakeholder research questions.
