RMC Research Corporation
RMC has over 25 years of expertise in program research and evaluation, professional development, consultation, and product development and is a subcontractor in four Regional Educational Laboratories, including the REL that serves the Southeast. In collaboration with WestEd and AIR, RMC is translating research into multimedia tools for educators, administrators, and others through its work on the Doing What Works website. The DWW site is based on the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) Practice Guides and IES What Works Clearinghouse reviews and other entities that adhere to standards similar to those of IES to evaluate and recommend practices that are supported by rigorous research. RMC staff will collaborate with SECC on a number of projects focused on implementing college- and career–ready standards and assessments, ensuring school readiness and success of preschool–age children, and turning around low–performing schools.
