The mission of the Rand Corporation is to "help improve policy and decision making through research and analysis." Known for its centrist theoretical underpinnings, Rand tends to emphasize quantitatively-based analyses of complex issues, and this page, dedicated to research on academic achievement, aligns with that theme. Here readers will find journal articles, commentaries, reports, and news releases concerning a number of achievement related topics, such as "The Effect of Attending Full-Day Kindergarten on English Learner Students," by Jill Canon, Alison Jacknowitz, and Gary Painter. While some links lead to articles that are located behind pay walls, there are plenty of abstracts to peruse and the news releases, reports, and blogs are freely available for all site visitors. The page can also be searched by content type (e.g. blog, report, journal article, etc.), subtopic, and author name.
