Research & Efficacy
Research Informs Everything We Do
Savvas is committed to providing the most innovative and highest-quality instructional materials to support educators and improve student outcomes. To achieve this, we use the latest research-based principles to develop our products. Our extensive research informs every step of our rigorous product development process — from pedagogy and instructional design to usability and efficacy in the classroom — to ensure we deliver the most effective learning solutions.
Our approach to research is thoughtful and intentional. It seeks to:
Continually test, evaluate, and improve our educational products and technologies.
Drive development of evidence-based learning solutions.
Facilitate ongoing dialogue with the educators, parents, and students we serve.
Product Research That Supports Improved Learner Outcomes
From formative research and field-based inquiries to summative and efficacy research, Savvas products are rigorously and repeatedly tested to determine how they can best support the important work teachers do every day in the classroom. Our experienced Research Team measures program efficacy through scientific studies that evaluate how well our products meet the diverse needs of all learners. We work closely with educators and schools to highlight district success using our learning solutions.
Our research process for product design and development involves a three-tiered approach where we:
Examine existing literature and investigate the needs of educators and students.
Generate a product vision, develop concepts, and iteratively test prototypes in simulated and contextual environments.
Measure the implementation and effectiveness of a product, as well as gain insights into educators’ experiences using it in the classroom.
