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 determine the efficacy of the NumberShire Level 1 gaming intervention, aimed at improving mathematics achievement for first-grade students with or at risk for mathematics learning disabilities. Intervention to strategically accelerate math learning in early elementary school can help prevent costly remediation in later grades.
