META Associates is a consulting firm specializing in contract research, educational consulting, and program evaluation. We work with state education agencies, school districts, universities, businesses, and community-based organizations to deliver high quality products and services including:

  • Evaluation of Local, State, and Federal Programs
    META has evaluated a range of programs and services including migrant consortium incentive grants for 36 states; Title IB Even Start, Title IC State Migrant Education, and Title ID Neglected or Delinquent programs; Title III and Bilingual Education; Teacher Incentive Funds; National Science Foundation Grants; Indian Education Programs; Native Alaskan Programs; 21st Century Community Learning Centers; Hispanic-Serving Institutions (Higher Education), Technology in Education, Rural Education grants; and Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) Programs.

  • Technical Writing, Proposal Writing, and Materials Development
    Technical writing ranges from developing strategic plans, to helping clients design a comprehensive needs assessment, to preparing handbooks and guides that explain specific programs. META consultants have worked with clients to outline and develop successful proposals in response to diverse funding sources, prepared technical reports, and conducted data analyses and summarized data into reports. We have developed curriculum and instructional materials, conducted curriculum alignments, written implementation guides for learning strategies, and prepared literature reviews. 

  • Meeting Facilitation and Conference Planning
    Working closely with clients to achieve their goals for meetings and conferences, META assists with theme development, “branding,” planning, presentations, and meeting evaluation. We have arranged site logistics, contracted presenters, prepared meeting presentation shells and materials, developed systems for participant reimbursement, and dispersed honoraria and cost reimbursement to presenters and participants.  
  • Staff Professional Learning and Development
    META’s highly experienced consultants are available to provide technical assistance and training at all levels. We regularly consult with state and local staff on topics including the education and evaluation of diverse learners (migrant, bilingual, neglected or delinquent, and students with special needs). Our meetings and workshops are interactive and reflect the latest research, incorporating evidence-based strategies. A few of the topics: conducting a local comprehensive needs assessment, meeting the unique needs of migrant students, using data for decision making and continuous improvement.
