Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 11, 2016
Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, and Renaissance Learning™, a leading provider of cloud-based K12 assessment and learning analytics, announced today that Renaissance Learning’s STAR Assessments™ will integrate with Edgenuity MyPath™. This collaboration will provide educators with the power to more effectively assess each student’s proficiency and assign personalized learning paths for intervention, remediation, or enrichment.
“Edgenuity MyPath’s data-driven, differentiated instruction meets students at their learning level to provide them with the individualized support to catch up or get ahead,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “Our partnership with Renaissance Learning provides educators who use STAR Assessments with an even clearer picture of a student’s strengths and weaknesses, further enhancing Edgenuity MyPath’s ability to support a student’s unique learning needs and ensure better academic outcomes.”
How Edgenuity MyPath Works
Edgenuity MyPath includes instruction that ranges from the third-grade to the eleventh-grade skill level to help close gaps and prepare students for success. Results from Edgenuity’s placement exam or third-party assessments, such as STAR Assessments, are used to recommend Individualized Learning Paths, or ILPs, which are customized sequences of engaging, interactive lessons that focus on the skills and concepts that students are ready to learn.
How the Edgenuity MyPath - STAR Assessments Integration Works
- Import Data: Educators import student scores in math and reading from STAR Assessments into Edgenuity’s MyPath system.
- Assign ILPs: Based on the STAR Assessments data, Edgenuity recommends ILPs that focus on the concepts and skills students need to learn. STAR Assessments-informed ILPs are aligned to the Common Core and state standards and feature direct instruction videos, interactive tasks, practice activities, and frequent checks for understanding.
- Monitor Performance: As students work through their lessons, educators receive dynamic and detailed reports to monitor student progress.
“At Renaissance Learning, our primary goals are to save teachers time and help them drive student growth,” said John Flora, Senior Vice President of Products at Renaissance Learning. “Our STAR Assessments data is able to inform the instructional decisions of all teachers so that they can get the best out of their available resources, including Edgenuity. The integration with Edgenuity MyPath creates a better opportunity for schools to better drive student achievement, and we’re excited about the partnership.”
