Clare Wolfendale

Senior Data Analytics Developer

Clare Wolfendale specializes in data cleaning and management, working primarily with education administrative data. She focuses on studies of programs and policies, preparing data for school districts, state departments of education, and the U.S. Department of Education.

Currently, Wolfendale is working on multiple education projects, including data preparation for Mathematica’s large-scale evaluation of the Race to the Top and School Improvement Grants programs. She also supervised a team of programmers in the data cleaning and analytic file preparation of student-level test scores and demographic information for the KIPP Investing in Innovation evaluation, a project that measured the effects of attending KIPP middle schools and high schools on student achievement and other outcomes. In addition, she provides programming support for the design and estimation of value-added measures of teacher and school effectiveness for the Oklahoma State Department of Education’s educator evaluation system.

Before joining Mathematica in 2010, Wolfendale worked at Bryn Mawr College, where she graduated with a B.A. in economics.
