ISTE 2012 NEWS: Archipelago Learning and Northwest Evaluation Association™ Form Agreement

6/27/2012 3:14:00 AM
Archipelago Learning, a PLATO Learning company, and Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA™), provider of computer adaptive measures of student growth, announced today that they have formed a relationship that brings together their flagship products: Archipelago Learning’s Study Island test preparation and practice solution, and NWEA’s Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) computer adaptive assessments. 

MAP assessments, currently in use by over 5,200 school districts, charter schools, and other educational organizations, provide data about each student’s learning level and content areas that merit focus. Study Island, a web-based instruction, practice and learning program built from individual state testing standards, has built-in instructional activities so educators can target instruction and practice to a student’s specific needs.

Schools can now deliver MAP assessment results directly to Study Island, which will then prescribe learning strands targeted to each student’s specific needs.
