DALLAS, TX—Sept. 19, 2017—Voyager Sopris Learning today announced Alisa Dorman, with more than 20 years of experience in education, has been hired as its new Vice President of Research and Product Effectiveness. Dorman joins Voyager Sopris Learning from the Office of Literacy for the Colorado Department of Education, where, for the past three years, she was Executive Director and led the state’s early reading initiative.
Among the duties in her new position, Dorman will spearhead and monitor research projects with school districts, perform statistical analyses on student reading and mathematics assessment data, and investigate new ideas for product enhancements to support the company’s mission of helping children achieve reading and math success.
“I have enjoyed an ongoing relationship with Voyager Sopris Learning for more than a decade in my previous career positions, and I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to work with a team dedicated to the pursuit of improved outcomes for students,” Dorman said.
During a tenure that began in 1998 with the Oklahoma State Department of Education’s research and development team, Dorman was first introduced to Voyager Sopris Learning solutions.
“Seemingly every position I held, there was an intersection with Voyager Sopris Learning and their evidence- and scientifically based intervention products,” she said. “I’ve known the mission of this company for many years, and I have a great deal of respect for its authors, who are revered for their contributions to getting kids back on track.”
After leaving the Oklahoma Department of Education in 2007, Dorman worked for Eugene, Ore.-based Dynamic Measurement Group (DMG) and contributed to the development of multiple literacy assessment tools and professional development materials for educators. DMG is the author of Voyager Sopris Learning’s DIBELS®—a set of assessments for measuring the acquisition of basic early literacy skills for K-6 students.
“We are very excited that Alisa has joined Voyager Sopris Learning as our new head of research and product effectiveness,” said Jeffrey A. Elliott, president, Voyager Sopris Learning. “Her deep experience in both the public and private sector will help us further our mission of making it possible for all students and teachers to reach their full potential.”
A graduate of Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Dorman received her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 1990 and two Master of Education degrees in 1995—one in Reading and the other in School Counseling. Upon graduation, she began her teaching career as an elementary teacher in Texas and later in Oklahoma.
Dorman, who was raised in Bokchito, Okla., currently resides in McKinney, Texas, with her husband, Chris. They have two children, Riley, 19, and Emma, 10.
