The Center for Evaluation and Program Improvement (CEPI)
The Center (CEPI) is dedicated to applying state-of-the-art scientific research and analytic procedures to identify the most cost-effective human and educational services. Leonard Bickman, professor of psychology, psychiatry and public policy has led the Center since its inception in 1981.
Senior investigators engaged at the Center work in multidisciplinary teams. They represent the specialties of psychiatry, psychology, sociology, economics, policy analysis, and statistics.
The Center's recent work has focused on the application of a theory of change developed by the Center to a web based quality improvement and evidenced based treatment called Contextualized Feedback Systems™ (CFS™). CFS assesses change as a client progresses through treatment.
