Research-Based Design Certified Products - Product Certifications

Research-Based Design Certified Products

Congratulations to the following products for earning the Research-Based Design Product Certification!

Digital Promise has verified that the following products have met the certification criteria described below. These products submitted applications that underwent a rigorous assessment process to certify that they are designed for learning according to research.

To earn the Research-Based Design Product Certification, edtech product teams must submit artifacts, or evidence, to demonstrate that:

  1. They consulted rigorous and empirical research about learning to inform product design decisions;
  2. They developed a theoretical framework, such as a logic model or theory of change, grounded in research about how people learn to drive product planning and decision making; and
  3. They publish the product’s research basis in a form the public can easily access (each logo below links directly to this artifact).


The Research-Based Design Product Certification is not an endorsement of products or their efficacy. The certification intends to help educators narrow their options as they select products to pilot. To learn more about piloting, check out the Edtech Pilot Framework.
