Our Mission

To help meet society’s need for access to effective, high-quality educational opportunities in an era of rapid economic, social, and personal change.

Against a backdrop of competing priorities, you're charged with providing a high-quality education to the learners you serve. And over and over again, you rise to that challenge. Leaders like you partner with The NROC Project (NROC) to imagine, develop, test, and refine technologies that improve student readiness, retention, and success.

Technology can't—and shouldn't—replace the human art of teaching, but it can help you effectively individualize instruction at scale. Every learner can benefit from personalized support, whether they're rising to grade-level expectations, transitioning to a new grade, preparing for college or career, or working to earn a credential that will give their family fresh opportunities.

NROC partners with educators to create open and low-cost courses and tools designed to recognize every student’s unique learning needs and preferences. These resources can be adapted and scaled to meet programmatic goals in a variety of instructional settings.

When your institution, system, or state partners with NROC, you enjoy affordable, unlimited access to NROC content, as well as thoughtful instructional resources, timely professional development, and responsive implementation and technical support. To boot, you gain a community of connected, inspired, and highly skilled academics who regularly share how their practices are opening doors for learners historically left behind.

If you're searching for ways to more effectively honor the unique needs of every students, we want to partner with you. View our current partner roster and contact us for additional information.

Our Commitments

On Equity

We believe that all students should have access to high-quality educational opportunities. Educational equity—the idea that systematically disenfranchised and underrepresented students deserve fair and inclusive treatment—is a lens that we apply to our mission-based work.

We rally behind and build curricula and tools that strengthen college and career readiness because we know that postsecondary education often improves career trajectories, positively disrupting the cycle of generational poverty and its associated ills.

We don't think NROC is the answer, but we consistently aim to be part of the solution. From design ethics to partnerships, educational equity drives our organizational priorities.

On Accessibility

We're committed to providing accessible educational experiences to the widest possible audience, regardless of any person's technology or ability. We're actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our courses and tools, and we adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0).

On Security

We take data protection and access seriously. EdReady employs best practices in data security, and only the minimum possible amount of personally identifiable data (PII) is acquired by default. We maintain a System and Organization Controls (SOC 2 Type II) security certification with AICPA, a cybersecurity risk management authority.
