The recent release of NAEP scores has policymakers reacting with quick-fix solutions. Naturally, nearly two years of learning loss due to COVID has created a score gap. Although most agree that NAEP is an unreliable gauge, if politicians are ready to make it a talking point, let’s ensure the programs that come from their aggressive funding reactions reliably help our students succeed!

On Wednesday, December 7th, Nate Casey, Chief Strategy Officer of enterprise tutoring platform Pearl, will host a teaching session to review the opportunities to leverage reliable research to inform an evidence-based approach to collecting tutor data.  Focusing on High-Impact-Tutoring specifically, Nate will review the current evidence and explore how a new approach to data collection will empower industry education leaders to influence positive change in government spending.

Topics that will be covered in this webinar:

  • Quick overview of NAEP results across the US
  • How policymakers are responding to NAEP scores
  • What does the research say about how money for learning loss should be spent?
  • How can tutoring leaders influence policymakers with reliable data?
  • What are the critical data categories that education leaders should collect, organize and submit to launch or maintain their program

This webinar will be most beneficial to the following groups of organizations:
