Evidence gathering and deployment are integral and embedded activities within Whizz Education and used in numerous ways including:
For transparency and evidence of impact with clients and relevant stakeholders. Quite simply, clients want to know if our work together is delivering learning outcomes and impact with their students. To support development of our offering. Gathering of learning evidence has and continues to inform our strategic path and value proposition.
For the key process of informing our course correction process to implementations, particularly large scale implementations. Having continuous learning data which we are able to mine and interpret allows us to make regular adaptations to implementations, with the cumulative impact over time being surprisingly profound. As an example this process allowed us to more than double (indeed nearly triple) learning progress rates in rural Kenya for students who had recommended access to our platform over a four year period between 2015 and 2019. For the gathering of insights and thought leadership which is used in communications internally and externally. The discipline of gathering data and evidence of what is working (and what isn’t) also provides our own staff with confidence in the organisation and work we do as a learning outcome partner.
