The goal of this work is to improve the existing RCE Coach to allow educators to measure the impact of interventions beyond educational technology, work in teams, focus on continuous improvement, and add modules related to capacity building.
Having the right evidence at the right time is critical to being able to make informed decisions in education. Mathematica initially developed the Rapid-Cycle Evaluation (RCE) Coach under a contract with the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Technology. To inform which ed tech products were used in classrooms, we designed the Ed Tech RCE Coach to provide districts with an online toolkit of resources containing everything needed to plan and execute a rapid-cycle evaluation of an ed tech product. But we found that this toolkit was useful beyond ed tech. Our current work has focused on continuing to improve and expand the platform to support more educators in determining which programs and practices work and for whom.
