- Manage evaluation throughout the life cycle of design, implementation, deployment, and use to make wise decisions about the design and content of the product and improve its effectiveness in the learning environment; and
- Guide developers to create potential impact as well as teachers, students, and administrators to deliver that impact through effective use.
