Dr. Schroeder’s overarching research focus is the enablement of Evidence-Based Policy-Making and Program Evaluation through the Secure Liberation, Integration and Analysis of Administrative Data.

Dr. Schroeder has extensive experience in the technologies and related policies of information/data integration and systems analysis, policy and program development and implementation, quantitative and qualitative methodologies of evaluation, and the general application of data and web technologies to the enhancement of public and private sector services.

A particular focus of Dr. Schroeder’s research has been on the integration and analysis of education, health, social service and non-profit administrative data streams for the purpose of conducting policy analyses and program evaluations impacting a wide range of constituents, including: pre-K child social and health service recipients; child care service operators; primary, secondary, post-secondary and adult education service recipients; state workforce training service recipients; and, U.S. veteran health and social service recipients.

High-profile information integration projects in the Commonwealth of Virginia include the USED-funded Statewide Longitudinal Data System, the USHHS-funded Project Child HANDS, and the USDOT-funded design, development, deployment, and evaluation of the U.S.’s first statewide travel information system, Virginia 511.
