Education Projects

The SRC has completed a multitude of different education surveys. We strive to better educational experiences for students, teachers, administrations, families and communities. Below are some topics we have completed surveys on:

Assessing Online Learning

Assessing Online Learning Methods in Wisconsin During the COVID-19 Pandemic: July 2021

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wisconsin educational experiences of students in pre-k to grade 12 moved to remote learning. Parents and teachers had to adjust and anecdotal evidence suggests that some instructional methods might have worked better for children in different grades and from different socio-demographic backgrounds. The intent of the research that is the focus of this report was to gather preliminary data that would allow us to see if any of these anecdotes are supported statistically.


Evaluation of UW-Extension’s Co-Parenting Class Survey-2017

The goals of this evaluation are to determine the degree to which the co-parenting course altered participants’ intended behavior in positive way, the extent to which the program was more or less effective with subgroups of participants, and if participants reported changes in their behavior, if they attributed those changes to the course and if those changes persisted after the course was over


Evaluation of United Way St. Croix Valley Success by 6 Initiatives Survey-2017

The United Way St. Croix Valley asked the Survey Research Center (SRC) at the University of Wisconsin at River Falls (UWRF) for assistance in evaluating the degree to which five different parent education efforts were contributing to the Success by 6 initiative.  Programs from which the SRC sought data were Home Visits, Baby & Me, Young Parent, Play & Learn, and Positive Solutions.
