Evaluating Content for Corrections — How Edovo Evaluates Curriculum for Incarcerated Learners
Once a course has passed our rigorous screening process, it moves on to the next step: evaluation.
Our goal is to provide the relevant information staff need to determine what coursework they could assign to their learner groups, what courses they could consider for merit-based credit, and what courses would benefit their learners most. Evaluation includes checks for:
Key Area of Focus
Which of the following categories does the content fall into: Academics, Vocational, Life Skills, Incarcerated Life, Reentry, Health, Recovery, Arts and Culture, Religion and Spirituality
Estimated Time to Complete
How long does it take a Learner who is meaningfully engaging with the content to complete the course?
Determined by combining video minutes with the estimated reading time and estimated time to complete engagement questions.
Determined by using the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level.
Was this content built specifically for incarcerated individuals?
Was this content created by formerly incarcerated individuals, or include the input of formerly incarcerated individuals?
How relevant is the subject matter in the market?
Is this similar to other content we have on the platform, or does it bring something new?
How professional does the content look?
Does the course include high-quality multimedia resources such as dynamic videos, audio, images, attachments, and engagement questions?
How rigorous is the curriculum?
Would it be viewed as having demonstrably taught a Learner?
Does the curriculum follow Edovo’s Best Practices for Curriculum Development and Learner Success?
