Our Approach to Research
The Best Assessments Emerge from Collaborations between Researchers and Educators
Our 5-Step Approach
Ideas are translated into a research study with defined materials, participants, procedures, and how the outcomes will be measured.
Once the research plan is verified, one or more controlled studies are conducted to see if the idea works under ideal conditions.
Research articles submitted for technical documentation are sent to two or more researchers who are experts in the same topic as the study.
The assessment has been researched and verified in controlled studies and is now available to districts for a limited, trial use to gather feedback.
With multiple sources of high-quality research, the assessment measure is released from Lab and becomes an endorsed assessment for instructional decision making.
