Education Evaluation, Research, and  Grant Writing

BYC Consulting

BYC Consulting is a highly specialized research and evaluation firm that provides services to educational and human service organizations.  Dr. Bruce Yelton, the owner of BYC began his professional career in educational research in 1986 and since that time has worked in numerous human service settings.  These have included studies and evaluations conducted for the federal goverment, state and local public school systems including various state Departments of Education, the NC Community College System, The North Carolina Partnership for Children, South Carolina First Steps Partnerships,  multiple Universities and, and other public service agencies. 

 

Techniques used in gathering information for these studies have utilized both quantitative and qualitative research techniques and have integrated the results of each approach to provide clients with the greatest possible understanding of their particular strengths and challenges.  Causal-comparative, and quasi-experimental designs have been used in combination with survey data collection and demographic analysis to provide a complete description of outcomes and context.  Qualitative research techniques that have included case studies, interviews, and focus groups have also been used to provide additional insight and balance for quantitative data. 

 

BYC Consulting adheres to the Guiding Principles for Evaluators developed and endorsed by the American Evaluation Association (a full text of the Guiding Principles is available online at www.eval.org.).   The operating principles of BYC stress that it is important that stakeholders impacted by the findings of any evaluation be well informed about the purposes of the study and how the findings may affect them.
