The interactive online learning platform also provides teachers with real-time reporting based on state and Common Core standards to guide their instruction anytime, anywhere, on any device and all on a single and secure sign-on. A proprietary “standards mastery and recommendation engine facilitates remediation, acceleration and review by automating the recommendation of resources and activities based upon standards mastery. The recommendations are also tailored specifically to the student – regardless of age, ability level, interests or special requirements.

About the SIIA CODiE™ Awards

The SIIA CODiE™ Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other’s work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program has carried out the same purpose – to showcase the software and information industry’s finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
