AdvancED eProve

School Accreditation & Improvement
Enterprise Software Platform

HYPOTHESIS

AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of PreK-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. AdvancED, partnered with 32,000 schools, worked with Digital Scientists to create a school accreditation and improvement platform called eProve. eProve is a modular diagnostic and improvement software platform consisting of six applications: eleot, surveys, diagnostics, strategies, workspace and analytics. 

  • eProve eleot: Conduct meaningful classroom observations focused on student engagement.
  • eProve surveys: Create, administer, and report on customized school stakeholder surveys.
BRAND IDENTITY - APPLICATION SUITE

The AdvancED eProve identity needed to communicate the connection between elements of a suite of products – and the cooperative approach to educational improvement that the AdvancED team employs.

BRAND IDENTITY - APPLICATION LOGOS

A system of individual application logos was created to support the primary eProve branding, allowing extension of the application suite as it grows. A related type treatment was also created for instances when a logo lockup is needed, like when representing individual applications, like Advanced Surveys.
