Praise from our Clients

The comments below are summarized from dozens of letters received from past and current clients, both the very large and the very small:

“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Duerr Evaluation Resources. Be assured that you will receive the highest quality of professional services, and will be provided with the personal touches that make working with Duerr staff a rewarding experience. Having served as a project director for a Safe Schools/Healthy Students grant, I am aware of the importance of a reliable evaluator and the contribution they make towards the creation of a successful program... Duerr Evaluation's several contracts with us have been executed in the most thorough and timely manner...I consider Duerr Evaluation to be one of the finest professional organizations I have ever had the fortune to work with and can--without reservation--recommend them."
Terry Longoria
Napa County Office of Education


“Duerr Evaluation has the ability to organize and efficiently manage a complex research project as made evident during their work with our program. They were able to meet the complex needs of the U.S. Department of Education while also supplying us with the information for our local needs. The company has a broad-based, positive, and professional reputation, with staff that are highly competent and responsive to client needs. The expertise of the Duerr team far exceeded my expectations and helped the quality of our program."
Jenee' Littrell
Grossmont Union High School District


“Reading this document [the evaluation report] so affirmed and matched my understanding of the work undertaken by our project these many years that I must write to tell you of my sheer delight, admiration for your professionalism, and respect for an honest effort on our part…. The organization and flow of content, the accurate and descriptive words and phrases (not too much, not too little: just right!) describe the strengths and weaknesses [of the program] perfectly…My heartfelt appreciation to you and your staff. You gave me an invaluable gift of the spirit!”
Helene Wardlaw
Even Start Program, Vallejo City Unified School District (an $8,000 a year project)


“I have always been impressed with the quality of work that is produced by DER and their willingness to accommodate special requests and other needs for information. I am very pleased to recommend them for any similar evaluation work.”
Christine Berry
Program Consultant, California Department of Education


“I cannot express enough how much I enjoy working with your staff and how valuable they have been in helping to design questionnaires and surveys to give us valuable information on the Peer Court Program.”
Karen Green
Director, Placer County Peer Court (a $5,000 per year project)


“DER's ability to organize and efficiently manage a complex research project was clearly evident. We were kept fully informed about data interpretation and findings when information became available. Their strongest attribute is to collect, input, and analyze large and interrelated data sets, and most importantly, to produce meaningful and usable reports for our program administration and managers.”
Frank Ingram
Program Manager, Office of Child Abuse Prevention


“Thank you for all of your help in developing a specialized database tailored to meet our grant’s requirements … Your ability to work with the complex needs of both the California Department of Education and the Office of the Attorney General, and your ability to translate terminology between the two departments brought us to a collaborative agreement in a much shorter time frame than I anticipated…. You and your company have a broad based, positive, and professional reputation.”
Eloise Bradrich-Talk
Administrator, California Department of Education


“I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for the expertise and excellence that your company has provided to the Early Behavior Intervention Program…. Everyone who provides technical support over the phone is friendly, response, supportive, and attentive to detail. It has been a true pleasure to work with all of you.”
Karen Timko

“I’m glad the scale (Walker-McConnell Scale of Social Competence and School Adjustment) has worked out so well for you. As I told you, I’m terribly impressed with the work you all have carried out in evaluating the [Early Mental Health] Initiative.”
