Without goals to measure, your district’s growth is going nowhere fast. Your edtech solutions have to be aligned and able to measure your goals. Here’s how you can tell if your edtech investment will be able to provide the data you need to track progress.


Short- and long-term goals

Your district growth plans will include both short-term goals and long-term growth plans. Milestones along the growth path provide opportunities to measure progress. Before you begin a new edtech implementation, don’t forget to take the “before picture” to measure your progress with your new solution vs. older products.


Using edtech to track growth

After taking the leap of faith during search and implementation, use your solution’s built-in instructional software utilization reports to see who is using the software. These reports should be broken down by class to show exactly how many students are actively using the software.


Building a solid partnership

Hector Perez, assistant superintendent of technology for United ISD in Texas, emphasized the importance of a long-term relationship with an honest account manager. “I need to know you can fix something,” he said. “In tech, you never know when you’re going to need that middle-of-the-night phone call.”


Edtech data is made for the long haul

Data is most effective when you can compare and analyze it over time to see progress toward long-term goals. Your edtech solution must be made to fit this strategy!
