The 'Consumer Reports' of CCSS Instructional Materials







EdReports.org, a new nonprofit launching in the fall of 2014 to publish Consumer Reports-style reviews of yearlong instructional materials, beginning with mathematics, is hoping for 10 minutes of your time to complete a short survey with these specific aims:

§  Listen for input on the criteria most important to educators when selecting instructional materials

§  Inform the development of the EdReports.org evaluation tool, instructional material review process and website

§  Validate EdReports.org’s vision, mission and 2014 goals

EdReports.org believes that educators need high-quality instructional materials to help students attain college- and career-ready standards. It seeks to be your trusted, independent source to review instructional materials on behalf of teachers, principals, school district purchasers, state adopters/recommenders, parents and publishers. Reviews will be conducted by expert educators from across the country and published on a public website. By producing such reviews, EdReports.org will help educators become more informed consumers of instructional materials, leading to improved quality of materials over time as educator needs are heard.

Please complete this survey by May 30, 2014.
 
To show EdReports.org’s appreciation for your time, your name will be entered into a raffle for a $15 gift card upon successfully submitting your completed survey. The drawing will take place the first week of June.
