Keith Zvoch’s research primarily centers on the evaluation of school-based intervention programs. His recent work has involved the use of randomized experiments and strong quasi-experimental designs (e.g., RD/ITS) to study the effectiveness of interventions (i.e., RtI, summer school, full-day kindergarten) designed to promote early childhood literacy. A motivating problem that underlies much of his research is the inferential impact of breakdowns in the delivery and receipt of intervention programs administered in field settings. The application and study of methodologies that account for treatment noncompliance and deviations from treatment protocol are of particular interest. Dr. Zvoch has been the principal/co-principal investigator on two IES funded grants and is currently an Associate Editor for the American Journal of Evaluation. He has published extensively in education, evaluation, and child development journals.
