Evidence for ESSA, is a free web-based resource that provides easy access to information on programs that meet the evidence standards defined in the American Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The website is designed for education leaders at the state, district, and school levels, to provide information to state chiefs, superintendents, principals, teachers, parents, and anyone else interested in which programs meet the ESSA evidence standards.
While this website is aimed at educators in the United States, I do think it can be interesting to a global audience as the website reviews math and reading programs for grades K to 12 to determine which meet the strong, moderate, or promising levels of evidence defined in ESSA (additional subject areas will be added later). The site provides a one-page summary of each program, including a program description, brief research review, and practical information on costs, professional development, and technology requirements. It is easily searchable and searches can be refined for particular groups (such as African Americans, Hispanics, or English Learners); communities (urban, suburban, or rural); and program features (such as technology, cooperative learning, or tutoring). Evidence for ESSA directs users to the key studies that validate that a program meets a particular ESSA standard.
The mission of Evidence for ESSA is to provide clear and authoritative information on programs that meet the ESSA evidence standards and enable educators and communities to select effective educational tools to improve student success.
