FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the big changes I can expect to see in the updated version of EVERFI: Financial Literacy?

The refreshed EVERFI: Financial Literacy includes seven (7) digital lessons, each taking students ~25-35 minutes to complete. These lessons have been redesigned from the ground up to focus on more engaging, interactive content delivery while maintaining the rigor of our assessments that educators already loved. The updated lessons are shorter than those in the legacy version, giving educators more flexibility in implementation within their class periods.

The instructional focus shifts from video instruction to simulation-based learning activities to help students focus on financial problem-solving skills. Lesson pre- and post-assessments remain intact, standards-aligned, and academically challenging, giving educators confidence that students have mastered the financial skills covered in each lesson.

I have written the EVERFI: Financial Literacy legacy lessons into my curriculum. What resources are there to help transition to the new lessons?

We understand the time and thoughtfulness educators have put into embedding EVERFI into their curriculum. We’re providing a comprehensive crosswalk document that will help you map content in the legacy EVERFI to the new update and ease your transition to the new course. In addition, we’ll have the full array of teacher resources including a curriculum guide, course outline, and refreshed lesson plans, available ahead of the course launch this summer.

How do I access the refreshed version of EVERFI: Financial Literacy?

Access to the latest version of EVERFI: Financial Literacy will be made available to all current users via their EVERFI dashboard this summer. If you are a new teacher to EVERFI, we encourage you to register at www.everfi.com/newteacher. As always, thanks to our wonderful sponsors, unlimited licenses for EVERFI: Financial Literacy are provided to educators at no cost across our educator network.

Can I go back to the legacy version of EVERFI: Financial Literacy?

While we think the updates to both the content and delivery in the updated course will appeal to most learners and educators, for the academic year 2019-2020, we will support both the legacy and refreshed versions of EVERFI: Financial Literacy. We encourage all educators to use the curriculum crosswalk to guide your transition and, as always, your local Schools Implementation Manager is available to help plan and assist a successful transition.
