Edmentum, a global education leader and a pioneer in online teaching and learning solutions, announces three of its programs—Courseware, Exact Path, and Study Island—have secured finalist placements for the 2019 SIIA CODiE Awards™ in three categories: Best Science/STEM Instructional Solution, Best Cross-Curricular Solution, and Best Formative Student Assessment Solution, respectively. Award finalists represent applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services, and related technologies across the pre-K–20 sector.
“To be recognized by SIIA as award finalists in three categories in an incredible honor,” said Kristie Lindell, director of product management at Edmentum. “Our ‘Educator First’ mission drives us to partner with educators throughout our design and development process to create the highest quality programs that drive positive learning outcomes for all students based on their unique needs.”
Courseware empowers career exploration and college readiness with best-in-class online curriculum to support 6–12 students. By offering over 400 semester courses for first-time credit, credit recovery, and college and career readiness, Courseware’s curricula cover a depth of content that provides pathways toward job readiness and career certification.
Exact Path promotes academic growth for K–12 students in reading, language arts, and math by closing discrete skill gaps and propelling learning forward in a personalized environment. The program uses adaptive diagnostic assessments to pinpoint each student’s instructional level, strengths, and needs and then automatically provides students with an individualized playlist of curriculum to ensure academic growth.
Study Island is a customizable K–12 formative assessment and practice tool that gives educators the flexibility and depth needed to support student learning and continuously engage, monitor, and assess progress. Built to state standards and designed to support preparation for high-stakes assessments, Study Island is backed by multiple valid research studies that confirm the program meets ESSA requirements of an evidence-based intervention.
The SIIA CODiE Awards have recognized product excellence for more than 30 years. Courseware, Exact Path, and Study Island were honored in the company of 139 finalists across the 32 education technology categories.
“The 2019 CODIE Award finalists represent the finest in innovation and creativity in educational technology,” said Jeff Joseph, SIIA president. “These breakthrough products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to the diverse needs of students and educators.”

Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
