LearnPlatform by Instructure
Discovery Education engaged LearnPlatform by Instructure, a third-party edtech research company, to develop a logic model for Science Techbook. LearnPlatform by instructure designed the logic model to satisfy Level IV requirements (Demonstrates a Rationale) according to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
To continue building evidence of effectiveness and to examine the proposed relationships in the logic model, Discovery Education plans to conduct an evaluation to determine the extent to which Science Techbook produces the desired outcomes. Specifically, Discovery Education has plans to begin an ESSA Level II study.
Because of the development of the logic model and the plan for an ESSA Level II study, Science Techbook meets Tier IV evidence requirements in compliance with ESSA.
