Advice: Sharing knowledge about different measurement activities

Facilitating the sharing of the differences between as well as the roles of research, evaluation, and other types of measurement activities

Overview

The overarching goal of TLA's Measurement Agenda is to unify the evidence and implementation cycles so that evidence-based practices are implemented in order to provide each student with an effective, equitable, and engaging education that enables them to reach their full potential.

This strategy contributes to that goal by by ensuring that measurement activities and questions are relevant to implementation goals, objectives, and stage.

Educators and decision-makers need to understand how measurement activities can answer the questions they need answered in order to do their jobs.

Researchers and funders should support practitioners' development of these skills.

All stakeholders also need to ensure that their expectations for evidence match the maturity of implementation and the length of time required to find some answers.
