The Center for Educational Policy Research (CEPR) strives to increase the number of Oregon high school students that enter credit-bearing courses at postsecondary institutions with no need for remediation. CEPR works with Oregon's educators, school districts, higher education administrators, and policy makers to research current systems, to develop realistic programs, and to offer suggestions and training to achieve this goal. CEPR works closely with a private, non-profit research center located at the same site, the Educational Policy Improvement Center.
CEPR develops and conductss:
- course and standards alignment studies
- workshops to help faculty coordinate services and create institutional partnerships
- online tools for educators to ensure students are college and career ready
- research with schools, districts, state and national partners to create alignment between secondary and postsecondary systems of education.
