The NROC Project is committed to making effective, high-quality educational experiences accessible to all students, especially first-generation college goers, low-income learners, and students of color. To achieve our mission, NROC depends on different types of partnerships, including members, educational resource creators, and strategic partners. Explore how we work with a rotating cast of educational institutions, systems, and states, subject matter experts, designers, technologists, philanthropists, and business leaders.

Texas College Bridge is a personalized, adaptive learning platform (powered by EdReady) that guides 11th and 12th grade students through individualized, self-paced college preparation courses in math and English. Each course uses PEIMS-assigned course names and numbers. Upon successful completion of the curricula, learners can earn credit for the college preparatory course as well as a CCMR indicator for A-F accountability.
Additionally, Texas College Bridge pairs students with facilitators who will help them reach their goals, and the easy-to-use performance interface gives teachers and administrators full visibility into math and English mastery. Free to districts now through June 2022, Texas College Bridge is a great option for online, hybrid, and face-to-face instruction.
Looking at entry-level college English and math courses, students who enrolled in Dallas College after successfully completing Texas College Bridge had a higher overall passing percentage than college students who did not participate in Texas College Bridge.

This comprehensive platform prepares students for college-level work. If we have an avenue to help our students reach their end goals faster, then why not try it. I highly encourage and recommend others to participate in Texas College Bridge.

Montana Digital Academy launched EdReady Montana in 2014. Since then, the program, supported by the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, has offered free, digital math and English curricula customized for upper elementary, postsecondary, and adult students.
EdReady Montana, powered by EdReady technology, is designed to support credit recovery, grade-to-grade transitions, and college readiness.

Career and College Ready Graduates (CCRG) aims to reduce and ultimately eliminate the need for developmental education among high school graduates. It is grounded in a partnership between the NC Community College System (NCCCS) and the NC Department of Instruction (NCDPI).
The NROC Project is facilitating the implementation of CCRG with EdReady, an adaptive math and English learning platform that personalizes learning.
Jacksonville State University (JSU) was an early EdReady adopter. Notably, the four-year public institution replaced their high-stakes placement instrument with the platform—an innovation that has ensured more students enroll in credit-bearing math courses in less time, at a lower cost, and with significantly higher success rates in their subsequent math courses.
For additional information, check out Jacksonville State University's Journal of the National College Testing Association article, "Low-Stakes Mathematics Placement and Preparation Using EdReady."
Outreach and Technical Assistance Network (OTAN) is a California State Leadership Project for technology integration and distance-learning projects in the adult education classroom. OTAN partners with adult education agencies to help them effectively utilize educational technologies like EdReady and HippoCampus.
OTAN staff have served on The NROC Project's adult education advisory group, and Penny Pearson, Distance Learning Projects Coordinator, was awarded NROC's 2017 Ambassador of the Year award.
