SDP Convening 2017 has ended

Communities around the world are embracing the philosophy of "open" to crowdsource knowledge and resources to fuel solutions to intractable problems.

Join us from May 17 - 19, 2017 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel (606 Congress St, Boston, MA 02210).

Would you like to know what works faster? This session will introduce rapid cycle evaluation (RCE), a powerful, fast method for testing which education interventions are effective and should be adopted or discontinued at scale. Presenters will share lessons-learned from two school districts’ implementation of RCEs.

Attendees will also participate in a hands-on exercise conducting a simple RCE using the free RCE Coach toolkit, which supports agencies at all stages of the RCE process and allows users to publicly share evaluation results.
