How REMIQS Works

By JFF and Urban Institute

How does the REMIQS (pronounced “re-mix”) work?

  • New statistical model that combines a comprehensive array of indicators, inputs, outputs, and outcomes to identify which schools have demonstrated consistent and longitudinal success in promoting high academic and social achievement with marginalized student populations
  • Integration of national data sets with state data to ensure inter-state comparability and a model that can be expanded to include more states as interest rises
  • 2-year in-depth investigations of 10 high-functioning schools across at least five states, each school with a proven track record at achieving exemplary results among vulnerable student populations
  • Identification of the practices, procedures, policies, and school features that promote high achievement among traditionally underserved student populations
  • Strategic communications components that target policymakers, impacted communities, systems-level leaders, media, and funders to show them what we can learn and scale if we gather better data and use better models to interpret them
  • Stakeholder committee: diverse group of impacted individuals who will advise project and interpret findings during full quantitative filtering and in-depth case-study phases

This research is a joint effort of JFF and KnowledgeWorks and created by the Student-Centered Learning Research Collaborative.  Funding for this project is provided by the Barr Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, and Oak Foundation.
