Services

  • Instructional Systems and Capacity Building

    edCount provides high-quality, research-based technical assistance to state and local clients that wish to improve the alignment and delivery of classroom instruction, as well as the administrative processes that support it. Our instructional alignment and capacity building services focus not only on creating systemic resources to support teachers and administrators in their jobs, but also on helping practitioners build the capacity to continue to implement, grow, and evaluate such systems themselves.

  • Assessment Implementation and Evaluation

    Assessment is a critical and necessary component of any education system, but not an end in itself. edCount's core belief is that an assessment's purpose must not be limited to obtaining a number or score. Rather, to be effective, an assessment must ultimately serve and support instruction. The assessment services we provide for state and local clients help them not only implement and improve assessment systems, but also to make decisions and interpretations in the context of a broader educational framework in which assessment is an important – but integrated – component.

  • Policy Evaluation and Support

    Our professional interactions with practitioners in all corners of the education field give edCount a comprehensive view of how policies and programs impact and function in schools, districts, and states across the country. This broad perspective makes us particularly capable of contributing to federal and multi-state efforts to evaluate, improve, and respond to federal policies and initiatives.
