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.

Montana Digital Academy launched EdReady Montana in 2014. Since then, the program, supported by the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, which recently awarded our partners $3.5M to continue to expand the effort, 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. To date, ~180,000 students have been served.
For more information about EdReady Montana, check out the Improving College Readiness at Scale: Practical Insights From the State of Montana whitepaper.
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."
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 North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) and the North Carolina 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.
Texas College Bridge is a personalized, self-paced college math and English readiness program powered by EdReady. Students who successfully complete the Texas College Bridge program earn a TSIA (Texas Success Initiative Assessment) exemption accepted at nearly 60 partnering colleges and universities across the state. The exemption allows students to immediately enroll in credit-bearing courses without having to take a high-stakes placement test.
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.

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.
