We started working with EVERFI in 2022 to assist them in their journey of building a portfolio of evidence for one of their K-12 products. When we meet education organizations that are in the initial stages of compiling evidence of efficacy for their product(s), one option is to start with our Pathways to Impact report. This report is designed to meet an essential component of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) evidence Tier 4: demonstrates a rationale (the other of the ESSA requirements for Tier 4 evidence is to have a plan to continue researching the product or program).
During this process of working with EVERFI, we collaborated on creating a program logic model, developing a series of theory of action statements, and linking core program components from that logic model with existing research showing relevant expected outcomes. The result is a Pathways to Impact report that EVERFI redesigned and published on the EVERFI website.
Following the success of that project, we are hoping to partner with EVERFI in the future to continue research on their EVERFI K-12 products.

A logic model is a roadmap for a product or program. It details five core components: program inputs, participants reached, activities, outputs, and outcomes. The logic model identifies how a program aims to have an impact on learners, translating inputs into measurable activities that lead to expected results. By illustrating the reason for the product design, the logic model explains how the program will produce the desired outcomes.
