The Collaborative for Leadership, Education, and Assessment Research (CLEAR) at NJIT works to align and coordinate educational activities, especially digital and online learning, including curriculum design, educational practice, and assessment and evaluation development and administration. The Collaborative also engages in investigating and developing tools, materials, and resources to support educational research, professional learning, and best practices to foster K-16 educational effectiveness, personalized digital learning, and student success.
Some initiatives include the Online Professional Learning Exchange (OPLE), the NJIT platform for delivering ongoing professional learning experiences in a blended learning environment, NJIT’s Curriculum, Learning and Assessment Studies (CLAS) Network (our open resource repository in development), the Technology Envoy program, and tools for adaptive and blended learning. In addition, CLEAR has recently entered into a partnership with the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) and the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) to assess and recognize digital learning readiness in New Jersey through the Future Ready Schools - New Jersey Certification Program.
