AIR Research

A rigorous evaluation of the Network to Transform Teaching (NT3) initiative is required as part of the Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) grant that funds this work. The National Board has partnered with American Institutes for Research (AIR) to conduct the evaluation. The National Board and AIR can only meet the evaluation requirements of SEED funding with sites’ active participation. As evaluation activities from the 2013 grant recently came to a close and we evaluation activities for the 2015 grant are currently underway, we want to clearly communicate what will be done and more centrally locate the findings from these activities.

Below are the research studies that were conducted under the 2013 grant (that initiated the network) and that are currently being conducted or continued under the 2015 SEED grant that currently funds the network (note that some of these studies directly involve(d) all NT3 sites and some involve(d) select sites or none at all).

Research Studies Under SEED 2013

  • NT3 Implementation Study
  • Board Certification Pursuit Study
  • Cost Study
  • Teacher Leadership Study

Research Studies Under SEED 2015
  • NT3 Implementation Study (continuation from SEED 2013)
  • Systems and Schools Study
  • Board Certification Pursuit Study (follow up from SEED 2013 study)
  • Impact Study of Board Certification
  • Teacher Leadership Study (continuation from SEED 2013)

This page contains a spreadsheet of information about each of these studies, which will be updated on a continuous basis (note that this spreadsheet will be update to reflect the SEED 2015 Research studies in January 2018).


At the very bottom of the page are the most current findings, organized by study. As new findings become available they will be added to this page.


For questions about any of the studies please e-mail AIR’s Natalya Gnedko-Berry at ngnedko-berry@air.org.
