In working with learning organizations across the country, we strive to continuously improve the support, services and resources you need to keep driving student outcomes. Use these resources to plan, manage and support getting the most from your edtech, and elevate the great work your team is doing to make results matter.
Working with schools and districts, states and networks and higher education institutions, we get a lot of questions about our features, capabilities, analytics, research methodology and automated processes. In this section, we share those questions and answers.
Lea(R)n’s research and analytics team updates and shares this glossary to support greater comprehension of research methodologies, rapid cycle evaluation, data cleaning, interventions, co-variate analysis, product utilization and edtech evaluation.
