As the national leader in identifying and supporting the selection of quality, standards-aligned instructional materials (90 percent of ELA and math market reviewed), EdReports provides free reviews for existing curriculum based on standards alignment and usability to support all students. Their goal is to ensure that district administrators, teachers, and other key stakeholders use these reviews to select stronger curriculum to support student learning. RAND AIRS ASL data show that 37 percent of educators say their districts have used EdReports (up from 32 percent in 2020) and EdReports has confirmed engagement with 96 of the largest 200 districts (eight million students). EdReports believes, and research shows, that instructional materials that follow rigorous college- and career-ready standards can improve and deepen student learning.
As a result of EdReports’ work, at least 39 publishers have updated and improved their products, and nearly half of ELA materials and a third of mathematics materials are now standards-aligned. Forty-six percent of school leaders report having heard of EdReports and 32 percent of those leaders have used EdReports to identify, select, and implement instructional materials. About 1,100 districts representing 12.4 million students have used EdReports to support and strengthen their curricula.
Overdeck Family Foundation has been a proud funder of EdReports since 2017. Our grantmaking supports EdReports in reaching more users and influencing more districts across the country to choose high-quality and standard-aligned instructional materials for their students.
