Research

Make a difference with evidence-based solutions

By investing in the best research upfront, we are able to perform ongoing data collection and analysis—from foundational and exploratory to developmental and design. The end goal is always to realize efficacy, scale the results to better inform our programs, and help us to meet the needs of every student and teacher. Our dedication to research is what allows us to develop the evidence-based programs and services that enable entire learning communities to excel.

Research inspires our approach

It’s important for every student to succeed in school and life, and for teachers to know exactly how to help them. Educators are meeting the challenge of sustaining improvements and we’re committed to the application of learning science from development to implementation. With a clear picture of what’s working, we can maintain a cycle of continuous improvement in the development of products and services, ensuring positive student outcomes.

Foundational and exploratory

We gather information and data, review the most up-to-date scientific research, and consult with experts in classrooms and universities to understand the needs of students and educators.

Development and design

We build user-centered research into our development cycle to ensure our solutions are optimized to empower educators.

Impact

We measure the effectiveness of our solutions in classrooms across a variety of settings with diverse student populations.
