Bradley J. Geise


Brad has been with Education for the Future just shy of 20 years, providing support and consultation services to schools and districts who are intent on using data for Continuous School Improvement. Taking the show on the road, Brad regularly provides continuous improvement, data analysis, and other presentation services through workshops, seminars, and a variety of conference appearances. Helping clients work on their own continuous improvement efforts, Brad dedicates a significant amount of time to facilitating Data Institutes and other hands-on learning opportunities across the country.

Brad hosts our monthly online meeting series, Calibrating Your School Improvement Efforts, providing targeted support for school improvement efforts throughout the year to contract clients as well as those who have attended a Data Institute, workshop, or conference appearance.

Brad manages broad contract data services for the office, specifically directing the daily operations of our data services unit, placing emphasis on the integrity of data as well as providing the results that are most valuable and useful to schools. Brad works with clients from across the country, directing projects ranging from single schools to some of the largest districts.

With Victoria Bernhardt, Brad recently authored From Questions to Actions: Using Questionnaire Data for Continuous School Improvement, documenting the role of perceptions data in comprehensive data analysis and details the steps in questionnaire construction, administration, analysis, presentation of results, and staff engagement for school improvement.

Brad has also authored several applications that are designed to help facilitate data collection and use throughout school districts. In order to make questionnaire work more accessible to schools, Brad authored School IQ: School Improvement Questionnaire Solutions. Brad also authored The Classroom Assessment Solution, an application used to collect and analyze data for classroom assessments and an application that scores and analyzes stranded/clustered assessment data.

Residing in Chico, Brad and his wife, Beth, an elementary school teacher, have a son Benjamin as well as daughters Ella Jean and Anna. You may see photos of Brad's kids on a few of the data analysis tools that he has developed.
