With a new year approaching comes a great opportunity to reflect. As I think about the past year, I am grateful for our partners, our Board, our staff and our network of educators that has helped EdReports advance its mission to increase the capacity of teachers, administrators and leaders to seek, identify and demand the highest-quality instructional materials.

Hear directly from some of EdReports.org's Content Review Team members about how the time they’re putting into their reviews to support schools and districts will save other educators time when selecting and implementing their curriculum.

In March 2015, we published our first set of K-8 reviews, including grade-level and series reports for 20 K-8 mathematics series. Following our launch, we heard overwhelmingly—from publishers, mathematicians, stakeholders and educators—that those who are using our reviews to help inform their purchasing decisions and to inform how they utilize their current textbooks want even more information. In response, we made a few revisions to our methodology and evidence guides to add more.

Amy Weber-Salgo, our Director of Mathematics Reviews, shares new K-8 evidence guides that are now available on the EdReports.org website. These are the same documents that our reviewers use to drive their independent review of materials and then their conversations in the weekly PLCs.

Our theory of action at EdReports is that by providing more information about aligned curriculum and supporting smart demand, we will be able to improve the supply of high quality, aligned materials that are available in classrooms nationwide. To that end, we're thrilled that our next round of 58 K-8 math grade-level reviews has started and our results will be posted on a rolling basis.
