We shine a light on our partners, the work we've done across the country, and insights from our team members.
Sometimes our partners cannot access student-level data. In this blog, we detail how EA maintains a robust data system of publicly available data and how we create custom reporting to provide data-driven insights for our partners.
In this blog, we establish core principles for conceptualizing data interoperability as transport, including how decentralized governance models enable local control over data in ways that maximize privacy and security. We introduce the concept of "data neighborhoods" as a metaphor for this interoperability model, and we connect different kinds of context around educational data to the core principles.
We have been using interim assessments across the state of South Carolina to monitor learning lag and recovery. Here, we present results from analyses using data from Fall 2021 and suggest data-driven approaches for targeting accelerated learning strategies to the students most in need.
Delivering evidence-based interventions: How Future Forward adjusts dosage and develops graduation criteria to best serve students at scale
EA’s Future Forward Literacy program is a highly effective evidence-based tutoring program. Such programs have become even more needed in the wake of COVID-19 school disruptions. In this blog, we describe Future Forward and discuss how dosage can be adjusted, including through the development of “graduation” criteria, so COVID-related funding can be used for interventions for as many students as needed.
Flexibility during COVID-19: What we can learn from California’s use of interim assessments in the 2020-21 school year
Many local education agencies (LEAs) in California administered an interim assessment instead of the state’s summative assessment in 2020-21. Using data from 47 LEAs, we compare participation and proficiency rates in 2020-21 with pre-COVID rates, as well as highlight the work of one school that excelled in supporting their students’ learning during COVID-19.
Future Forward Literacy awarded U.S. Department of Education grant to expand and enhance service to 6,000 new students
Early literacy nonprofit Future Forward (a program of Education Analytics) successfully transitions into the next stage of nationwide expansion with its third award in 10 years from the U.S. Department of Education’s “Education Innovation and Research” (EIR) program.
