Unpacking the Black Box of Efficacy

Unpacking the Black Box of Efficacy

A framework for evaluating the effectiveness and researching the impact of digital learning tools.

2017-11-29   |   Category: Press Release

Educators are flooded with choices as digital learning tools enter the higher education market. But how can instructors know if a product will be effective for their students? And, how should they assess if claims are relevant or reliable?

With such high stakes, we encourage educators to demand more transparent, reliable, and relevant evidence so you can make the best informed decisions about what learning products to use, why, and how.

To help, we've partnered with leading experts to develop a white paper that provides a concise and critical review of research methods used to assess learning products. And, we offer a future-looking framework that embraces the diversity of educational settings, allows for products that are continually evolving, and provides practical and transparent insights into how a product will be effective for you and under what circumstances.
