Program of Research
The Center on Teaching and Learning (CTL) is a world-class research center at the University of Oregon that uses scientific evidence and research-based practices to advance teaching and student learning.
Curriculum Design & Development
Our content and instructional design experts have developed a suite of evidence-based literacy, math, and early science interventions with a special focus on grades K-3 and struggling learners.
Measuring Student Performance
Education experts at CTL developed and continue to maintain the UO DIBELS Data System (DDS). The DDS, through its support of student performance measures, serves 20% of all U.S. public schools.
DIBELS® 8th Edition is a battery of short (one minute) fluency measures that can be used for universal screening, benchmark assessment, and progress monitoring in Kindergarten - 8th grade. Learn More!
Featured Research Project
The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of a first-grade mathematics intervention called Fusion aimed at developing understanding of whole numbers for students at risk for mathematics learning disabilities. According to results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 42% of fourth graders performed at or above the proficient level in mathematics.
