Investigating how well a department- or district-wide intervention works

District administrators have been talking about recent research on mindset interventions in STEM courses and want to see how it works in your context. Rather than relying on anecdotal evidence, they decide to create the experiment in Terracotta, link it to outcomes, and contribute to the broader conversation.

Testing your hypothesis about an education method

As a researcher, you’re always on the lookout for a tool that can help you access high-quality data, but you’re well aware of the difficulties of conducting responsible experiments in classroom contexts. With Terracotta, you can build the experiment, integrate informed consent into the process, run the experiment, and access your deidentified data when it’s done, with students who opted out automatically excluded from the data export.

Terracotta helps you build the experiment and gives you the data you need when it's complete.
