As a former Research Scientist for the NYS Office of Mental Health and for the Center for Human Services Research at the University at Albany, Jennifer Bashant has 12 years of experience conducting thorough literature reviews.

Have you ever wondered what the research indicates is best practice in a particular area? You don't have time to scour the literature, so let us do it for you. We will synthesize the findings in a report that highlights only the main points you need to know in order to inform your decisions.

Examples of some research reviews Jennifer has conducted for schools:

  • Best practices for teaching reading in an urban elementary school

  • Research on later start times for high schools, along with qualitative data gathered via interviews of superintendents who have already shifted to a later start time

  • Community Schools versus Magnet Schools in a large urban school district
