Accelerating the field’s capacity to learn in and through practice is one key to transforming promising ideas in education into tools, interventions, and professional development initiatives that achieve effectiveness reliably at scale. Practical Measurement explains why this type of learning requires a different kind of measurement—measurement that is distinct from the measures commonly used by schools for accountability or by researchers for theory development.
