Robert H. Meyer is Director of the Value-Added Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and president and CEO of Education Analytics. Since the early 1990s, he has worked with school districts and states across the country to build value-added and performance management systems that inform decision-making with respect to policy and school improvement strategies. He is leading major initiatives in Minnesota and the Dakotas (and their partner school districts) to provide value-added information to all teachers and to the colleges and universities that prepared these teachers. He has conducted major statistical evaluations of programs and policies such as class-size reduction, literacy, and supplemental educational services. Meyer received a Senior Urban Education Research Fellowship from the Council of Great City Schools in 2007 and received the University of Wisconsin-Madison Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Research in 2010.
