National Evaluation of Title III Implementation

In 2008, the U.S. Department of Education initiated a contract to evaluate the implementation of Title III of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), which specifically addresses policy and programs to serve English learners (ELs).

edCount contributed substantive expertise to the National Evaluation of Title III by collecting and analyzing English language proficiency standards and supporting documents for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and producing a report detailing our findings. edCount also conducted a comprehensive literature review on standards, assessments, and accountability practices under Title III, and engaged in the collection, synthesis, and analysis of data captured via telephone and on-site interviews with state-level administrators of Title III and related programs.
