Brief Program Description

This presentation highlights aspects of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) that may be of most interest to conference attendees including the broadened definition of academic success, expansion of subgroups for data reporting, emphasis on evidence-based research and practice, focus on continuous improvement, and need for increased educator understanding of research and evaluation. Resources will be shared that provide information for educators on how to use evidence, locate research findings on existing interventions, and access funding opportunities. A new master’s degree in Evaluation, Assessment, Research, and Learning (EARL) and graduate certificate in Applied Research and Evaluation will be introduced as opportunities to gain knowledge and skills in preparation for ESSA implementation.
