At McGraw-Hill Education, research fuels all that we do to improve the learning experience. We believe our biggest contribution in building a brighter future lies within our deep understanding of how learning happens and how the mind develops. We do this by supporting and funding a wide range of research on the effectiveness of our educational solutions. Our approach to evidence-based research and efficacy remains open-ended.
We recognize the value of smaller studies piloting first-year implementations as well as large-scale experimental studies, couched in the most effective research design, to empower educators and propel learners on a path toward success. We are actively incorporating rigorous research design and methodologies to our portfolio and are delivering a wide range of educational insights, including studies showing statistically significant outcomes, and studies illuminating the impact of non-cognitive factors on learning. While some studies may not meet the research standards set by ESSA, they nevertheless provide insight to help us to inform future product development.
McGraw-Hill Education will continue to invest in a mixture of research because we recognize its importance in creating programs that serve a diverse population of students and teachers across grade levels and content areas. Our newest solutions to-date are couched in earlier, time-tested research of the highest level of rigor possible. We are committed to unlocking the potential of every learner by providing them with evidence-based, cutting edge solutions, and hope to continue doing so in the future.
