Welcome to the Center for Evaluating the Research Pipeline!
The CRA Center for Evaluating the Research Pipeline (CERP) is designed to help increase diversity in the field of computing research by studying patterns of entry and persistence in computing at the postsecondary level.
CERP relies on a network of Data Buddies (i.e., computer science departments across the U.S.) to help us collect survey data from students and faculty in computing. CERP then uses those data to do comparative evaluation for intervention programs aimed at broadening the computing research pipeline, where we compare success outcomes among intervention participants versus non-participants.
We are currently recruiting new clients and encourage you to check out our evaluation reports page to see the results from some of our projects! If you or someone you know is interested in comparative evaluation for your intervention program, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to become a CERP client.
