Research, down to a science.

The evidence is in: from highly-effective assessments to real-time data insights, and more, Edulastic impacts student learning while satisfying Level III & IV requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).


The Edulastic Logic Model

This scientific, 360-degree view of data illustrates how Edulastic is the right assessment tool for schools to use to help students succeed.

How to Read a Logic Model

Step 1: Inputs

The logic model begins by identifying optimal assessment practices.

Step 2: Activities

Educators receive support from Edulastic with specific steps needed to deliver on the optimal practices identified in Step 1.

Step 3: Outcomes

This section highlights the outcomes we can expect when the optimal assessment practices are implemented.

What are some positive outcomes that can be expected based on the framework above?

Increase in school efficacy via data-driven decision making at the district, school, and classroom level
Improved equitable learning outcomes as a result of detailed insight into the need for differentiated academic supports
Improved learning gains and better educational experiences
Improved self-sufficiency and boost in confidence for students

Efficacy Study

Edulastic is shown to be beneficial in student learning, particularly in the world of mathematics, as evidenced by a study conducted in Ohio in grades 4-8 during the 2015-16 to 2018-19 years. Here’s a quick summary:

Measure of Academic Growth

The outcome measures in this study are based on annual math and reading value-added scores on Ohio’s state tests (OSTs). To estimate the effects of Edulastic usage in any given grade-by-school-by-year combination, separate linear multilevel models (MLMs) for reading and math were run. 

The Findings

Edulastic usage had a small, but positive effect on reading growth in grades 4-8. The effect of Edulastic usage, however, demonstrated even stronger evidence for math interventions.
