Our Service Areas
Our Education Lab
Crane R&D has extensive experience in student achievement. We believe that a key to supercharging program effectiveness is andragogy – teaching school administrators to infuse data-driven decision making into the leadership strategy. We trust that qualified staff know their content, from the arts to STEM subjects, however, they are often disconnected from student lives outside of the classroom. The training faculty at Crane R&D coaches your team on constructing these bridges.
Our faculty includes professors, principals, lead teachers, department chairs, and other career educators. We leverage our understanding of developmental psychology, Human Services need areas, and measurable behavioral and academic outcomes for a turnaround effect in struggling schools.
Comprehensive predictive analysis has helped us to develop highly-accurate snapshots of what we can expect based off of different interventions with different groups. Through the course of our study, we’ve become adept with the statistics that power normed assessments. We offer technical assistance with NWEA MAP, MAP MPG, Terra Nova, STAR Renaissance, Every Student Succeeds Act rollouts, and organic value-added assessments.
The IT Space
At Crane R&D we rely on the diverse skills of our IT team to execute for our clients. We provide consultancy on protocols, analysis, and all areas of project management. Our team is a unique composition of IT professionals with the security, design, app development, and model maturity know-how to walk IT projects from conception to completion. Additionally, we offer staff augmentation because so many IT teams are lacking that essential player. The game changer. The scale tipper.
Our Work in the Human Services
The operational side of the Human Services can be baffling as administrators must balance stakeholder patience with the processes required for change. At Crane R&D we have an assortment of tools that help us quickly get to the bottom of essential issues of optimal staffing, implementing contact standards, and determining the best ‘tweaks’ for program efficiency. Our team has decades of experience in the Human Services space. We’ve taught graduate coursework, evaluated programs, created risk tools, piloted surveillance systems, and optimized the use of data for both continuous improvement and grant reporting.
At Crane R&D, our research team is hard-skilled, in other words, they have the technical training and aptitude to help you use your data to explore the defining questions of your field; Why do minority health disparities exist? Which of our practices actually reduce the number of days a family is on public assistance? Where are the opportunity youth to engage in our program? How do we rebuild trust with the community we serve after a critical incident? When should we start recruiting for our early childhood intervention?, What are the real barriers that keep our clients from staying in contact with us? What can we do to reduce the rate of people who get in trouble with the law a second time? and dozens more.
We believe in cultivating causes . . . please feel free to use any of these HotSheets as you wish!

Outcome management can be a tedious task. At Crane R&D we simplify the process for determining the effectiveness of your programs and processes by providing an independent evaluation. Our Phase I evaluations focus on identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to each element of your enterprise. Our Phase II evaluations are created through collaboration with you to implement tweaks in a sandbox environment – where you don’t have to worry about harm to your business flow. Similar to Kaizen, we use our own life-cycle assessment which is customized to the specific outcomes and objectives attached to each project.
