Our Work

Education-focused applications

AdvancED, partnered with over 32,000 schools, worked with Digital Scientists to create an accreditation and improvement platform for schools called eProve.

The challenge

AdvancED (now Cognia) 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.

AdvancED eProve

eProve is a modular diagnostic and improvement software platform consisting of six applications: eleot, surveys, diagnostics, strategies, workspace and analytics.

We worked on a series of projects, including:

  • eProve brand identity: Communicate the connection between elements of a suite of products.
  • eProve eleot: Conduct meaningful classroom observations focused on student engagement.
  • eProve surveys: Create, administer, and report on customized school stakeholder surveys.
  • eProve diagnostics: These tools are designed to offer a comprehensive, yet simplistic way of identifying a school’s strengths and challenges.

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.

Eleot (Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool™)

Our challenge was to take a traditional, paper survey – backed up by a proprietary observation methodology – and translate it across digital platforms in an accessible, bright, and friendly manner. eleot works online and offline, automatically syncing observations when users have network access.

In partnership with the AdvancED Product Development Team, we wireframed, prototyped and built easy-to-use interfaces for educational institutions to access, customize, and distribute their library of certified content.

eProve Surveys

In partnership with the AdvancED Product Development Team, we created wireframes, prototyped and built easy-to-use interfaces for educational institutions to access, customize, and distribute their library of certified content. This provides the information needed for educators to send out the best possible surveys to their teachers and parents.
