EdGate performs independent analyses of existing alignments to assess accuracy and validity, based on our methodology and experience.
EdGate is an approved vendor for the Virginia Department of Education and the Missouri Department of Education, conducting third party review of correlations. In the case of the Virginia DOE, EdGate analyzes the correlations for hundreds of online courses to ensure that each course meets the 90%-100% correlation rate designated by that state.
Another scenario may include the review of alignments that have been mapped or migrated into the EdGate system to ensure the resources aligned meet the expectations according to EdGate’s philosophy and methodology.
These reviews are performed by conducting Gap Analysis to identify standards that are not covered in an alignment.
