The tools used to create EdReports’ mathematics and English language arts reports have been in use for more than five years. As a learning organization, we regularly examine our review process, evidence guides, and review criteria to determine what, if any, updates need to be made.

Beginning in the summer of 2019, EdReports launched efforts to formally collect feedback on our review tools (review criteria, corresponding evidence guides, and the overall review process) in an effort to continually learn and improve our reports. We have synthesized feedback from the field and have applied strategic updates to our tools. Reviews utilizing the revised tools will begin in spring 2020 with completed reviews launching early next year.

We have put together a list of FAQs that provide insight into our revision process as well as address potential impact on the education field and publishers.
