EdReady is a personalized-learning platform that can be customized to ascertain and improve student readiness in math (English to come in 2016) for any course of study. EdReady is being used to differentiate math instruction in middle and high schools, to improve college math readiness for matriculating students, to support co-requisite and accelerated models of math remediation for college students, and much else besides. We have seen positive and often dramatic results in most use-cases, encouraging continued experimentation even as we refine approaches that we know work well.

The NROC Project is supporting EdReady adoptions nationwide, including deployments to entire states and systems. This uptake means that EdReady is driving OER usage at multiple levels of the formal education system in the United States, including secondary, post-secondary, and adult educational institutions. Educators and administrators using EdReady tell us that the platform is changing their pedagogical practices and their expectations around instructional resources, fostering greater autonomy and personalization. We believe that EdReady is poised to become one of the most important vehicles we have yet seen for getting OER into classrooms, demonstrating the effectiveness of the materials, and thus supporting their continued use and improvement over the long term.

In this session, we will review EdReady's basic design, adoption metrics, and learner outcomes for a variety of use-cases. We will also discuss some of the future plans for EdReady, especially as they relate to OER and the open education community.
