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.
NLP also asks educators and students to complete evaluations to gather anecdotal feedback on their experience with the platform and its content.
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 expected to be available for download in the fall.
The report is available upon request.
