“With the help of Learnosity, we are able to accelerate learning for students"
New York (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
Learnosity and Triumph Learning today announced their strategic partnership to enhance learning environments for tens of millions of students across the country. Triumph Learning joins a rapidly growing list of educational publishers and assessment companies joining forces with Learnosity to improve learning and assessment worldwide.
Triumph Learning is using the Learnosity APIs to seamlessly integrate Common Core-aligned, technology-enhanced item types (TEIs), which allow students to demonstrate mastery of key concepts and skills, into their digital products.
“We’re very excited to announce the Learnosity-Triumph Learning partnership,” said Learnosity CEO and co-founder Gavin Cooney. “Our SaaS approach has allowed Triumph Learning to speed up the launch of Waggle for the Smarter Balanced Assessments. Waggle, the first of many Triumph Learning-Learnosity collaborations, has recently been introduced to classrooms and has already been well-received by students and teachers alike. We’re very proud to be involved with this great product and look forward to working on many more together.”
Waggle is a personalized, smart practice solution for elementary and middle schools, built by Triumph Learning in conjunction with Learnosity. Waggle’s Smart Practice helps students build skills and prepare for assessments in a supportive, engaging environment. Designed for students in grades 3-8, Waggle offers in-depth practice with customized feedback and scaffolded instruction in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math.
“With the help of Learnosity, we are able to accelerate learning for students and help them build confidence in their skills for SBAC,” said Aoife Dempsey, Chief Technology Officer of Triumph Learning, “This partnership will provide teachers with a wider range of items types that they will see on the Smarter Balanced assessments and provide teachers with insightful and intuitive reporting to inform instruction and meet each student where they are.”
