Evidence-Based Programs

ESSA puts states and school districts in charge by setting up new opportunities, but it also requires states to balance many decisions. We’ve organized information here to help you determine local needs and which evidence-based strategies will best serve your student population.

The chart below aligns to ESSA's four evidence categories and outlines the types of research studies completed on select Voyager Sopris Learning programs. For a closer look at the four evidence categories in ESSA, view the Evidence-Based Requirements Explained tab above.

A Closer Look at Evidence-Based Criteria

ESSA emphasizes "evidence-based" approaches that have demonstrated statistically significant positive effect on student outcomes. ESSA identifies four levels of evidence: strong evidence, moderate evidence, promising evidence, and evidence that demonstrates a rationale. The levels do not correlate to the strength of student outcomes. Rather they define the study criteria.
