A Results-Driven research firm

Elevating the quantity and quality of product research.

Educators can’t waste time using products that don’t work. We partner with education companies to provide schools with the research and evidence they need to accelerate learning for all students.

This overview video explains how product research plays a role in district purchasing and the four tiers of ESSA evidence required by the law.

Research Documentation

Logic models, research summaries, and buyer studies to bridge your messaging.

“Why should your product work?”

Research Validation

Review and validation of previously conducted research, providing third-party, expert review of your studies.

“How rigorous was this study?”

Research Evidence for ESSA

Efficacy studies that measure learning, ESSA Levels 1-3.

“Look, the product works!”

Evidence matters. Tell your data-rich ESSA-aligned stories to seal the deal with large districts.

LXD Research guides companies in building evidence to show their products will meet their users’ desired outcomes. In partnership with companies and school districts, we measure the impact of learning environments to provide evidence of student growth that gets your products on approved lists. LXD Research provides Insight Reports with opportunities to improve program implementation, teaching impact, and learner outcomes – so your following study shows more robust results.

ISTE’s Better Edtech Buying: A Practical Guide explains a study from 2018 that found nearly half of educators rely on vendor research. Authors recommend educators seek out independent research reports and third-party validations of studies. Product leaders are finding requests for third-party evidence happening more often post-ESSER funding.
