The Office of Learning Recovery and Acceleration (OLR) coordinates collaborative COVID-recovery education research, evaluation, and evidence-based initiatives within North Carolina. A goal of the OLR is to provide approachable and actionable data to a variety of educational stakeholders.
As part of our commitment to that goal, throughout 2022, our office will be publishing a series of blog posts and whitepapers intended to help the field unpack the comprehensive report released in March 2022 to help understand the overall impact of the pandemic on students in North Carolina’s public school system, based on 2020-21 year-end state exams (End-of-Grade and End-of-Course). Through these blog posts and whitepapers series, each month we will focus on a key finding or student group to explore in more detail and use existing literature to identify and propose key evidenced-based interventions intended to help those students combat the impact of lost instructional time and accelerate learning.
Questions: Jeni Corn, Director of Research and Evaluation.
