Recent Project Highlights

A Zobo research team designed and implemented a mixed-methods evaluation of a Cleveland after school program, targeting low-income elementary school students. Components of the study included online and in-person classroom observation, staff surveys, and quantitative student data analysis. Iterative formative assessment was provided throughout the school year, with the aim of modifying teaching and learning activities to improve student achievement.
During the Covid-19 pandemic Zobo worked with a global chemical firm to conduct surveys on how they could best serve workers as they transitioned to more remote work, while caring for children and other family members. We asked about the quality of current technology tools, what tools would make them more effective, and what norms do we need to see when workers are working from home. The information was used by technology leaders when meeting with vendors such as Zoom, and Cisco for webex.
To better understand the challenges schools are facing during the Covid-19 pandemic, Zobo conducted telephone interviews with school district leaders from five different counties across the state of Nevada. Questions were asked about how school closures impacted their work with students and schools. Information learned was leveraged to share lessons learned with other district leaders across the U.S., and better prepare leaders to deal with the Covid-19 crisis.
