In 2017 Metiri Group began the external evaluation of the Utah Digital Teaching and Learning Grant Program.
The Digital Teaching and Learning Program currently invests $15 million in accelerating and deepening learning through technology in Utah’s K-12 schools. The first cohort under the DTL program was launched in 2016, funding grants in 65 school districts across the state.
This dashboard is meant to be a collaborative tool for LEAs across the state to identify neighbors pursuing similar goals. It provides background information on each grantee’s targeted outcomes for the program, its progress in reaching those outcomes, and its stage of readiness and implementation of digital learning in participating schools.
The DTL Utah evaluation has strategically moved Utah from focusing on test scores to focusing on alternate assessments that can assist schools in demonstrating progress of students in developing and demonstrating key 21st Century Skills.
