Welcome to the EDEVAL Lab.


At the EDEVAL Lab, we work with clients and partners to support and advance educational development and attainment. We facilitate the advancement of organizations, programs, and policies through rigorous applied research and evaluation methods.  

Our approach is evidence-based, strength-driven, and stakeholder-engaged. Together we create new possibilities that support your vision of student capacity, organizational impact, and community development. Our work together ensures that you and your organization are empowered and equipped for effective action and ever-reaching impact.

Throughout our nearly five-year relationship, Dr. Zargarpour and her team have done an outstanding job at defining the scope in alignment with our needs and interests, planning each project to achieve the highest rigor, carrying out the research with sensitivity and adaptability as needed, and writing highly readable reports that have contributed both to Bright Prospect and more generally to the field of college access and success.
