The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) today released an EdTechNext report, titled “Managing Learning: Next-Generation Learning Systems,” which details how K-12 educators and administrators are using cutting-edge Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS) to transform teaching and learning.

Next-generation LCMS combine the best features of Content Management Systems (CMS) – content repository and authoring tools – with the Learning Management Systems (LMS) delivery platform that is flexible for virtual learning environments.

The report provides examples of how these next-generation LCMS are being used today, as well as important technical considerations for education technology leaders thinking about integrating and upgrading these systems.

Measured Progress Awarded Contract for ‘Next-Generation’ MCAS

DOVER, N.H.—Aug. 16, 2016— The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) has awarded Measured Progress a five-year contract for the highly anticipated Next-Generation Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System, known as the Next-Generation MCAS.The Commonwealth decided last winter to create a new assessment program to build on the strengths of both of its previous statewide assessments — the Commonwealth’s MCAS, and one provided by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC®)[1]. For the past two years, districts chose between MCAS and the PARCC assessment for the bulk of their year-end testing. Their findings and preference contributed to the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education's decision that all districts use the Next-Generation MCAS beginning in spring 2017.
