Spectrum K12 School Solutions Inc., the leading provider of Response to Intervention (RTI) and student achievement management solutions for K-12 school districts announced today its EXCEED® software has been selected as the “Best Education Solution and “Best K-12 Enterprise Solution” by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). Nominated products underwent an intensive review by subject matter experts, analysts, journalists, and others with deep experience in the field. Only 34 winners were chosen from more than 785 nominations submitted by 374 companies. Spectrum K12’s EXCEED was one of only 4 products that were named a winner in two separate education categories. The announcement was made at the 25th Annual CODiE Awards Reception and Dinner in San Francisco.
Spectrum K12 earned the award for its EXCEED software, a student achievement management product that gives teachers an easy way to drive day-to-day activities, research based interventions and outcomes to help all students achieve success while giving administrators the ability to see what’s working and what’s not by student, class, school, teacher or intervention.
The award for “Best Education Solution” recognizes EXCEED as the best overall education technology solution out of the 785 nominated products. Judges selected EXCEED as the “Best Education Solution” using criteria including ease of use, richness of functionality, impact on education processes, and overall visual/program aesthetics.
EXCEED’s selection as “Best K-12 Enterprise Solution” recognizes it as the best business management tool that supports education enterprises at preK-12 levels and that best enables data exchange, processing and reporting. EXCEED was judged the “Best K-12 Enterprise Solution” based on it’s ability to integrate data and information from various sources, ability to meet different user needs and education missions, easy access to student and/or course data, and a short learning curve.
“We are extremely honored to have been selected the ‘Best Education Solution’ two out of the past three years and to have been judged the ‘Best K-12 Enterprise Solution’ award for a second consecutive year against such strong competition,” said Jim Marshall, president and CEO of Spectrum K12 School Solutions. “These awards recognize our commitment to districts and states in providing the most innovative and effective personalized learning process management tools to drive student achievement and move every child forward.”
