A growing partnership between the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) and CompassLearning will give K – 2 educators the ability to deliver a unique learning path to each of their students based on the results of the Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) assessment. Until 2012, only teachers in grades 3 – 8 have been able to access these tools if their district has both MAP and CompassLearning Odyssey, the web-based learning platform.

Educators create personalized learning pathways for their students using the MAP and CompassLearning Odyssey in three steps. First, CompassLearning imports test data from MAP. Then learning paths are automatically assigned based on the RIT range—the rounded range of scores within which the student’s score would fall 2/3 of the time if the student took the test again soon under similar conditions. After assigning the learning path, students complete a range of CompassLearning activities, based on decades of research about how kids engage and learn, that is linked directly to their MAP-identified learning needs.

“We are very excited to offer the alignment between MAP for Primary Grades and CompassLearning Odyssey,” said Matt Chapman, NWEA President and CEO. “Now our youngest students can get the powerful learning bonus that comes when MAP data is combined with compelling curriculum.”

“With the alignment between MAP for Primary Grades and CompassLearning educators can create personalized learning paths for students that not only ensure they are experiencing academic success, but support their personal growth,” said Ann Henson, vice president, curriculum and instruction for CompassLearning. “Working with NWEA, we are able to provide teachers with information and resources that help them more efficiently and effectively understand each student and provide them with the resources to reach and engage them in realizing their full potential.”

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (June 26, 2017) – Renaissance®, the leader in K-12 learning analytics, is proud to announce the launch of Renaissance Flow 360™, an innovative solution designed to make assessment-driven personalized learning a reality. The program, which was recently announced as a CODiE Award finalist in two categories (Best Cross-Curricular Solution and Best Learning Relationship Management Solution), completed a year-long early adopter initiative, culminating in several successful implementations of Renaissance Flow 360 in districts across the United States. In addition to the early adopter implementations, Renaissance has recently collaborated with the El Paso Independent School District (EPISD) on an implementation of Renaissance Flow 360. Juan Cabrera, superintendent of El Paso Independent School District, says Renaissance Flow 360 is the next step his district is taking on the path to creating an active learning environment for each of the district’s 60,000 students.
