Program Design Framework & Process

A clearly articulated ToA or Logic Model establishes a clear problem statement, the inputs (activities), and the outputs (short- intermediate- and long-term outcomes). Intervene K-12 has developed a model to be used to frame their programmatic design, as measured by formalized data-driven instruction and company ambitions, such as the expansion of partnerships, and a instructional needs for students with a range of abilities and backgrounds. Program developers use a welldocumented process of curriculum development, crosswalking, question writing, and thorough editing to ensure that instructional materials align with any state based on district needs, including but not limited to Common Core State Standards (CCSS), Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and New York’s Next Generation Learning Standards. Course sequencing is highly structured and paced for learner success. Importantly, learner growth is monitored and benchmarked using adaptive, flexible instruction to differentiate instruction and meet individual needs based on prerequisite knowledge. Program materials are highly responsive to evolving standards and state and districts’ needs.

Program Evaluation

At Intervene K-12, a content team that is comprised of current and former educators is constantly evaluating instructional content for accuracy and tutors for quality assurance. Intervene K12 does monitor user performance data as an indicator of program effectiveness, and a more formalized and rigorous summative evaluation is currently
Rigorous research agenda. The design process used to develop, evaluate, and refine existing materials is in accord with the final version of the Logic Model. Intervene K-12, which relies on the High Impact / High Dosage Tutoring Model to guide their program development.

Program Content Selection & Design

Intervene K-12 program design addresses specific curricular and underway to test the program’s efficacy. We encourage the developers to devise and follow through with the summative evaluation plan and continue to document the effectiveness of the program, identifying areas for improvement.

Materials/Interface Design

Costs and resources for adopting Intervene K-12 are customizable depending on the needs of the client and of the learner population. Intervene K-12 offers flexible pricing and works with all types of grants and funding sources. There is ample opportunity to contact a representative from Intervene K-12 in a variety of ways (phone, email, chat).
