New Research-Based Certification Awarded To Voxy For Product Design Efficacy

Jun 22, 2020

New Research-Based Certification Awarded To Voxy For Product Design Efficacy Voxy is the only language learning platform to earn a new certification from Digital Promise, highlighting its unique and powerful approach to building English proficiency Author: Jun 22, 2020 12:08 PM EDT WASHINGTON, June 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Voxy has earned the Research-Based Design product certification from Digital Promise, which confirms a link between research on how students learn and Voxy's product's design. The new product certification is intended to serve as a rigorous, reliable signal for consumers, including school administrators, educators, and families, looking for evidence of research-based educational technology products. "In the aftermath of the pandemic and widespread distance learning, it has never been more important for organizations and schools to quickly and reliably gauge the efficacy of online learning technology," said Katie Nielson, Voxy's Chief Education Officer. "This certification demonstrates Voxy's unique ability to help English language learners (ELLs) succeed in school and after graduation." Voxy uses machine learning to personalize content and adapt online English language instruction. Its technology was recently evaluated by American Institutes for Research (AIR) in a study  that found community college students who used Voxy had larger English language proficiency gains than their peers in the comparison group who used a different software. "Schools and families want to know which edtech products can actually help students learn," said Karen Cator, president and CEO of Digital Promise. "Digital Promise's Product Certifications are designed to help strengthen consumers' confidence in choosing research-based products, while recognizing product developers doing the important work of incorporating valid research into their designs. "                                              After nearly a decade of edtech marketplace research, Digital Promise recognized that while consumers want to know whether a product will improve learning, there is a strong distrust of product-authored studies. Additionally, edtech efficacy or pilot studies conducted once products were already chosen were found to be largely impacted by contextual factors like educator buy-in or a school's technology infrastructure. Through Product Certifications, consumers can narrow their options as they select products by identifying edtech that is truly based in research about learning before trying it out in their classrooms. The Research-Based Design product certification uses a competency-based learning framework, developed in consultation with Digital Promise's Learner Variability Project advisory board, expert researchers in the Learning Sciences field, and dozens of educators across the United States. Further detail about its development can be found in Digital Promise's new report, "Designing Edtech that Matters for Learning: Research-Based Design Product Certifications. "       All developers, educators, edtech investors, and families are also encouraged to sign the Research-Based Product Promise and demand high-quality, research-driven products that support each unique learner. More information on Digital Promise's product certifications can be found at productcertifications.digitalpromise.org.
