Image for New Tool to Measure Impact of Expanded Learning

Dec 18, 2014

The Annenberg Institute for School Reform (AISR) has released a web-based tool around effectively measuring the process and impact of expanded and re-imagined learning time. The tool offers a range of measures that encompass the entire context surrounding educational improvement on indicators such as teacher leadership; engaged student learning; and student, family, and community engagement.

The project was undertaken with the goal of making research accessible to those around the country working to create equitable education systems, according to Michelle Renée of AISR. The site's resources aim to provide a deeper understanding of how more and better learning time can influence students' lives, school policy, and the systems surrounding schools. The project is part of the Ford Foundation's more and better learning time initiative, which seeks to reinvent urban public schools by adding and improving learning time to ensure that students are prepared for college, career, and civic participation.
