ROANOKE, VIRGINIA (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
As educators continue to personalize learning and develop tools to support individual students, developing a tutoring platform and program that supports every student is important. To provide a customized student achievement program that is tied to learning standards, FEV Tutor http://fevtutor.com/ chose to team up with Interactive Achievement to provide the award-winning onTRAC® Instructional Improvement System (IIS) http://interactiveachievement.com/products/instructional-improvement-system/ with comprehensive assessment and data analysis tools.
“We’re very excited about our partnership with Interactive Achievement because it provides our clients both customized standards-aligned reporting and customized standards-aligned tutoring plans for their students,” said Ryan Patenaude, Vice President of FEV Tutor. “What makes Interactive Achievement so valuable to educators is its comprehensive item bank, including a wide variety of research-based multiple choice, open-response, and Technology Enhanced Items (TEI) published by Interactive Achievement and NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association). The library of items are available within a flexible assessment engine. When tutoring students in such a wide range of geographic areas and school settings, it is important to have the flexibility to efficiently create daily formative assessments, pre-assessments, and post-assessments and in turn offer school partners, students, and parents access to real-time customized reporting, drilled down to granular learning objectives and standards – this is exactly what Interactive Achievement provides.”
Through this partnership, FEV Tutor will utilize Interactive Achievement’s onTRAC® software, including the use of the Assessment Management System (AMS) http://interactiveachievement.com/products/assessment-management-system/ module for continuous, formative assessment support directly tied to Common Core, Next Gen Science Standards, and individual state standards across all K-12 subjects. Utilizing Interactive Achievement’s online student testing platform, iTest, educators can develop customized assessments and deliver them to understand where student knowledge gaps are and target their instruction. The onTRAC Longitudinal Data System (LDS) http://interactiveachievement.com/products/longitudinal-data-system/ is utilized to provide reporting across the entire organization so that all stakeholders can immediately see and track student progress. Together, the combined FEV Tutor and Interactive Achievement solution will allow educators to more easily drill down into students’ understanding of specific strands and domains, and then use that information to guide individualized instruction.
“Because IA was founded by educators who believed we could do more for kids, we have built solutions that are designed for educators to truly help students reach their full achievement and growth goals,” said Interactive Achievement CEO Jonathan Hagmaier. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to provide an assessment and data platform to FEV Tutor and support them in developing individualized instruction plans. With FEV Tutor’s proven one-on-one tutoring platform and our onTRAC platform, educators can gauge student understanding in real-time and use formative data to drive effective instruction.”
