Edmentum, a leading provider of online learning solutions, debuted its new student-achievement platform Edmentum™ Sensei™ this week at ISTE 2013. The platform delivers a real-time picture of student progress by managing performance data from Edmentum’s online learning solutions and providing insightful charts, graphs and other visuals. This gives educators greater visibility into student achievement and enables them to incorporate more data-driven decisions into the learning process.
Educators can use Edmentum Sensei to track student engagement, subject mastery, recent activity, grades and other data in just a few clicks. Information can be monitored at any level – from an individual student or class to a specific grade level or an entire school – to help educators identify needs or patterns, measure growth, and glean insights. Edmentum Sensei is optimized for laptops and mobile devices for “anytime, anywhere” use.
“The increase of technologies in the classroom combined with new rigorous standards has put more pressure on educators than ever,” said Andy Frost, vice president of product management for Edmentum. “Edmentum Sensei gives all education professionals greater insight into achievement levels so they can better target students’ unique needs. It also automates the collection of student-performance data so teachers can focus on instruction."
Edmentum Sensei will be available to schools and districts later this year for Edmentum’s Plato Courseware online curriculum and Edmentum Assessments. The platform will eventually encompass all of Edmentum’s prekindergarten through post-secondary online learning solutions.
In addition to automated data collecting and student-progress monitoring, teachers can communicate with students using EdmentumSenseito answer questions, comment on their work or help them through problems. Teachers also can use it to deliver assignments or assign work to individuals in subject areas they may be struggling with.
Edmentum will be demonstrating EdmentumSensei at ISTE 2013 (booth #9212) at the San Antonio Convention Center, June 24-26, in San Antonio, Texas. For more information, visit edmentum.com/iste or call 800-447-5286.
