Research, Data and Evaluation Panel

The Research, Data and Evaluation Panel guides the Linked Learning field by advising on research and evaluation priorities, data collection, and the development and revision of certification standards and policy priorities based upon evidence-based practices and data feasibility.

In the areas of research and evaluation, the primary roles of the panel are to guide the research agenda of the Linked Learning Alliance Board of Directors, serve as a coordinating platform for research and evaluation initiatives, and advise the Alliance Board and partner entities on research and evaluation contracts to advance collective understanding of effective and necessary Linked Learning standards of practice. With regards to data, the Panel serves an oversight role with the Linked Learning data system, informing the data elements within the system, developing data access and use parameters, and setting criteria for the approval of Linked Learning-related data requests.
