LearnPlatform Evidence-as-a-Service Now Available in AWS Marketplace

Dive Brief:

  • RALEIGH, N.C. — 

    Edtech providers and their partners can now quickly and easily deploy evidence-based solutions to comply with federal requirements to effectively and equitably serve students and educators.

    LearnPlatform, the leading comprehensive edtech effectiveness system, today announced the availability of its Evidence-as-a-Service, a tiered subscription offering, in AWS Marketplace, a curated digital catalog that customers can use to find, buy, deploy, and manage third-party software, data, and services to build solutions and run their businesses on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The launch of Evidence-as-a-Service in AWS Marketplace will support K-12 solution providers and their partners with the necessary evidence to meet market demands, demonstrate compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), and efficiently serve all students and educators.

    The Every Student Succeeds Act requires federal funding and stimulus dollars to be used for “evidence-based interventions.” Evidence-as-a-Service offers education solution providers at any stage – early, growth and established – to meet ESSA compliance in a matter of weeks, at a fraction of the cost of traditional research and to build evidence-based interventions that empower districts and states to buy and use their products to drive student outcomes. Each subscription aligns with one or more of the four levels of evidence outlined in ESSA to demonstrate rationale and identify and show promisingmoderate, or strong evidence that their product positively impacts student outcomes.

    “As school districts and states across the US modernize their learning environments, we aim to provide solution providers with rigorous, practical evaluation to provide evidence at the speed of decision-making,” said Karl Rectanus, CEO and Co-founder of LearnPlarform.  “By offering our service in AWS Marketplace, we equip more providers to build their evidence base more quickly and cost-effectively, and better serve their state and district customers.”

    AWS customers can use their existing AWS credits to procure LearnPlatform’s Evidence-as-a-Service offering in AWS Marketplace. Learn more about Evidence-as-a-Service in AWS Marketplace here.

    Over the 2021-22 school year, educators on average used 148 different ed tech tools while students accessed 143, according to a report by LearnPlatform, an ed tech company that helps districts research and choose digital learning products.

  • Meanwhile, an average of 1,417 different ed tech tools are accessed each month per district, the report found. The most commonly used type of ed tech tools by students and educators focus on classroom engagement and instruction (22.5%), LearnPlatform found.
  • “These numbers should prompt district leaders to ask not just what ed tech is being used in their schools or how often it’s getting used, but also whether it is safe, equitable, and positively impacting learning,” said Karl Rectanus, CEO and co-founder of LearnPlatform, in a statement.
