Real World Learning is utilizing the independent data consultant, MDRC, for student MVA data collection.
MDRC’s role is to help Real World Learning stakeholders – by providing research experience and technical assistance – establish practices and systems that encourage cross-regional learning and continuous improvement.
As part of its work, MDRC has developed a set of metrics, known as the Performance Measurement Framework.
In summer 2021 and 2022, MDRC collected data related to several of these metrics from the first two cohort of districts (Cohort 1 and Cohort 2) implementing the Real World Learning Initiative to answer the following questions:
How many students completed at least one MVA in the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years? Who are the students who earned an MVA in the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years?
This regional-level report provides a summary of the findings from the data that MDRC collected from all cohort 1 and cohort 2 districts for the 2021-2022 school year.
