The Rapid-Cycle Technology Evaluation (RCTE)
The Rapid-Cycle Technology Evaluation (RCTE) project will develop approaches for evaluating educational apps to help schools and parents make evidence-based decisions when choosing which apps to use with their students. This project will establish a standard for low-cost, quick turnaround evaluations of apps, and field-test rapid-cycle evaluations to understand how to improve outcomes of ESSA programs. In addition to generating evidence on specific apps, the project will help develop protocol tools for conducting rapid cycle evaluations of apps that practitioners, developers, and researchers can use beyond the scope of this evaluation.
