Aaron K. Chatterji, Benjamin F Jones

Research output: Working paperDiscussion paper


Aaron Chatterji of Duke University and Benjamin Jones of Northwestern University propose the establishment of a third-party ratings organization for education technologies. Leveraging the pervasiveness of the new Common Core State Standards and the power of information technology, the proposed EDUSTAR organization would bridge the information gap between sellers and buyers, providing reports on the effectiveness of various software-based learning tools. Such an organization could help establish a transparent and therefore more dynamic market for the technologies, encouraging innovation in the sector and providing new ways to help students learn.
