Efficacy Reports

In March 2015, we started by reporting on five products on our efficacy website. The experience taught us just how hard this would be. Many of you said the reports were a bit too focused on the process of efficacy. You wanted to see more of the actual evidence.

We listened and learned from that experience and re-focused this year’s reports on learner outcomes and the evidence we have (or are collecting) against those outcomes. Each of these reports focuses on the impact a product has on learners’ lives.

We understand that our products don’t have impact in isolation. They work best when in the hands of capable educators. For that reason, we’ve included several testimonials from our customers and learners who are using our products. We thank them for their partnership and steadfast dedication to improving learning outcomes.
