Overview

Rockman works with education providers (serving all ages of learners), government agencies, and organizations with broadly educational projects that have a wide community or consumer audience. In addition to core education initiatives, such as research on school reform and teacher professional development, our services include conducting research and evaluation on public television and radio series, children’s television programs and Web sites, and edutainment products. Our areas of interest and experience include: technology use in formal and informal settings; telecommunications and media; whole-school reform initiatives; professional development programs; informal educational programs; special education; English language learners; arts education; math and science initiatives; curriculum and assessment; NCLB mandates and accountability; and community-based, youth programs. Rockman’s research staff work with each client to answer critical questions in a clear, direct, and honest way. 

Rockman focuses its services in three areas: evaluation and research, consulting, and market research. Staff are familiar with the needs and constraints of both public and private sectors.
