Edmentum, a leading provider of online learning solutions, has announced an expansion of its actionable data platform, Edmentum Sensei, to provide more meaningful analytics. Edmentum Sensei has expanded its intuitive reporting for teachers using Study Island and has added new views in Plato Courseware and Edmentum Assessments to offer insight for administrators and families. The new enhancements are currently available at no additional cost to Edmentum users.
With Edmentum Sensei for Study Island, educators are able to track standards mastery data to make formative instructional decisions. The visually intuitive program allows teachers to track how students are progressing toward standards mastery and to take action to investigate down to the specific objective level. This type of actionable data helps teachers individualize learning for students by reviewing their progress and taking action to help fill gaps.
“Educators are inundated with data, but the real challenge is finding and using insight from that data,” said Paul Johansen, chief technology officer at Edmentum. “Edmentum Sensei aggregates data from our programs and presents it in an intuitive and engaging way so that educators can take action to improve their programs by making data-driven decisions.”
Edmentum Sensei has been available for teachers who use Plato Courseware and Edmentum Assessments since December 2013. The new enhancements add a program-level view for administrative level roles and a family portal so that parents or guardians can engage and track a student’s progress. The program view will allow district-level roles to view district progress toward program goals, monitor account usage and trends, and make data-driven decisions. Edmentum Sensei for Families provides a portal for parents and caregivers, delivering the ability to track student progress and ongoing assignments.
