The Accelerator and our partners are currently engaging in research that aims to provide key data needed to support scaling high-impact tutoring.
The Accelerator Pilot Sites are designed to rapidly provide tutoring opportunities to students in need while also testing variations of models to better understand how to build quality and lower cost.
Currently, the Accelerator is launching pilot sites in ten districts which are in the process of adopting various tutoring models. Through other efforts, including those led by Saga Education and Amplify, an additional 30 sites are implementing tutoring programs and generating data to inform best practices. Participating sites are providing valuable input for the tools that the Accelerator is designing for both districts and tutoring organizations.
The pilot sites have several aims: documenting the impact of high-impact tutoring, continuing research to improve efficacy and cost-effectiveness, providing research-based assessments of tutoring program quality, facilitating the creation of tools and supports to ensure high-quality implementation, and collecting and sharing impact outcomes across programs.
