Education Transformation: Research and Evaluation
Evaluate your programs and strive for continuous improvement
Transformation initiatives should start with validated research and well-defined tracking metrics. Once data has been collected, it can be used to further refine education offerings, creating a positive feedback loop for continuous improvement—and completing the circle of transformation.
Here’s how Intel relies on intensive research and evaluation during program, product, and content development to ensure that education products and solutions support 21st century learning:
Intel® Education Solutions are based on ethnographic research in real classrooms around the world, as well as collaboration with education experts. Intel’s team of ethnographic researchers conducts multiyear classroom studies. This research informs the design and development of Intel Education Solutions products.
Intel® Education Tablets and Intel® classmate PCs are designed for a 21st century learning experience. They feature student-friendly rugged designs, tools to foster learning through exploration and content creation, and enhanced security to protect and manage devices. In addition, Intel Education reference designs feature a software suite based on educational and technical evaluations.
Intel works with government leaders, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), global alliances, public/private partnerships, and solution providers to develop and promote research-based approaches to education transformation, including:
- Assessment and Teaching of 21st Century Skills (ATC21S): Intel, Microsoft, and Cisco drive this global, research-driven assessment initiative.
- Intel, Microsoft, and Promethean created the Collaborative Assessment Alliance, which extends the ATC21S project in the areas of design, creation, and deployment of collaborative assessment tasks.
