"As a Preferred Services Provider, EdGate makes it easier for edtech suppliers to move to CASE digital format," - Dr. Rob Abel, CEO, IMS Global Learning Consortium
GIG HARBOR, Wash. (PRWEB) September 24, 2020
EdGate Correlation Services today announced that the company has joined IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS) as a Contributing Member and CASE Network Sponsor. As states and education organizations transition to using the IMS Competencies and Academic Standards Exchange® (CASE®) specification, EdGate will provide standards to IMS members that complement those in CASE Network. IMS members can use the EdGate Standards Exchange API to access a premium repository of academic standards, frameworks, competencies, and correlations—all available via an IMS-certified CASE 1.0 API.
CASE enables the consistent format and exchange of information about learning standards and education competencies in an open, machine-readable format.
“Now IMS members can tap into EdGate’s vast library of learning standards and receive those standards in the CASE format, using universal identifiers, providing interoperability of competency-based data and course relationships between systems. Beyond the ELA and Math CASE standards already available from IMS, EdGate offers a premium selection of standards in the subjects of Social Studies, Science, Art, Health and PE, World Languages, SEL, CTE, Early Childhood, as well as international standards and standards published by nonprofit or private organizations. So we are exponentially expanding the library of available CASE formatted standards,” said Gina Faulk, EdGate’s General Manager.
As states and organizations move to adopting the CASE format for their learning standards, EdGate will assist IMS members in transitioning quickly and efficiently to CASE-formatted versions of those standards. As education standards change frequently, EdGate will provide the most up-to-date standards and notifications when those standards change. Additionally, EdGate also offers complete standards crosswalking services (mapping) and alignment of resources to learning outcomes.
"CASE Network is the single, trusted source for verifying academic standards and workforce competencies that states and districts need to advance equitable digital learning ecosystems," said Dr. Rob Abel, CEO, IMS Global Learning Consortium. "As a Preferred Services Provider, EdGate makes it easier for edtech suppliers to move to CASE digital format while supporting the ongoing work of CASE Network to help standards-issuing organizations publish and control their standards across the digital ecosystem."
On Wednesday, October 7th, 2020 EdGate will provide a webinar. Learn how EdGate will support IMS to help build equity across districts and states by offering an extensive collection of CASE formatted standards, as well as crosswalking solutions.
