Gathering Impact Data
NLP has contracted with an outside evaluation consultant to develop a pre-platform assessment and individual post-lesson assessments to measure student growth for specific learning objectives. When students first log in to the platform, they will be prompted to begin the pre-platform assessment. Students will not see the results and are not scored.
When students complete a lesson, they are prompted to complete the post-lesson assessment (the questions are directly connected to that lesson and are designed to measure progress on learning objectives tied to it). Teachers can view a summary of the results of these assessments in their dashboard and can download a detailed report for analyzing specific items and measuring individual students.
At the end of every school year, NLP’s evaluation consultant prepares a report analyzing results. The report for the 2018-19 school year is available upon request.
NLP also asks educators and students to complete evaluations to gather anecdotal feedback on their experience with the platform and its content.
