Download the “Finding and Implementing Quality Curriculum: What Matters Most” white paper.
|In fall 2019, the EdWeek Research Center conducted a nationally-representative survey (sponsored by Amplify) of more than 500 educators to explore how they searched for, vetted, and implemented new curriculum programs.||
Key findings from the survey include:
- High-quality materials matter to educators – second only in importance to teachers.
- Educators who use the most popular third-party review source, EdReports.org, are highly satisfied with the tool, expressing confidence in its standards and evaluations.
- Administrators were more aware of and likely to use EdReports in their reviews of programs than teachers and instructional coaches.
- In thinking about a high-quality curriculum adoption, educators prioritized two areas not captured by third-party review sites: student engagement with challenging content and support for high-quality implementation.
