Roanoke, VA (PRWEB) July 16, 2012
Interactive Achievement recently met with the U.S. Department of Education to discuss a common problem: collecting data on students is not often timely or efficient.
Interactive Achievement, a company that creates student assessment and reporting software for school districts, met with representatives of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Information and Innovation to discuss how data from formative assessments are changing the way teachers teach.
Having collected more than 300 million data points, “Interactive Achievement is assisting school districts in making data driven decisions to better assist teachers in the classroom so students are more successful,” said Interactive Achievement CEO Jonathan Hagmaier, a former school principal.
Interactive Achievement is Virginia’s 2012 Small Business of the Year. During a meeting with the DOE in Washington, D.C., Hagmaier also discussed future possibilities of how technology in formative assessment can raise student achievement across the country.
“If used the right way, this solution can make a big impact on public education,” Hagmaier said.
