New capabilities designed to save teachers time, track growth, and drive learning forward
October 20, 2016 -
Edmentum, a leading provider of web-based learning solutions, announces a brand-new K-6 math, reading, and ELA individualized learning program. This release builds upon Edmentum’s mission of being educators' most trusted partner in creating successful student outcomes everywhere learning occurs.
Edmentum’s new solution pairs adaptive diagnostic assessments with individualized learning paths. The program is designed by educators for educators to provide targeted, assessment-driven instruction, reinforcement, and support in math, reading, and language arts. The solution delivers powerful insight into understanding where students are academically to identify strengths and weaknesses. It then takes that data a step further to offer targeted instruction aligned with goals, paced to students’ needs, and structured to give students control over their own educational journey.
“We are proud to introduce an innovative new tool for educators that is rooted in our fifty years of experience in education, built on the tens of millions of assessments and thousands of hours of instructional content we’ve delivered,” said Rob Rueckl, Chief Executive Officer, Edmentum. “Our new solution combines assessment, instructional content and progress monitoring into a single solution we believe will help teachers and schools save time and money. We’re not just launching a new product. Rather, we’re fulfilling our commitment to the districts and schools we partner with to deliver high-quality instruction and actionable data through simple technology to ensure customer success.”
Edmentum’s Individualized Learning Solution offers maximum flexibility and ease-of-use. It includes several key components: adaptive assessments and individualized learning paths, supported by real-time reporting, progress monitoring and powerful educator tools like performance alerts and grouping recommendations. The adaptive assessments, built by Edmentum’s experienced, in-house subject matter experts and psychometricians, evaluate students on a valid K-8 psychometric scale of learning. Individualized learning paths, with brand new, high-quality content, offer a competency-based progression of rigorous instruction, practice, and assessment. This unique blend of assessment and instruction allows educators to reliably track academic growth and performance over time to inform instruction.
Available to districts and schools beginning in spring 2017, Edmentum will debut the new solution at the upcoming iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium in San Antonio, Texas, on October 27, 2016. The conference is the EdTech industry’s leading event for K-12 online, blended, and competency-based learning. Edmentum will preview its solution to experts, practitioners, educators, policymakers, and researchers in booth #303 at a launch event in conjunction with the conference.
