Forsyth County Schools Chooses Student Assessment Solution

Forsyth County Schools has implemented a combined assessment-LMS solution. The comprehensive solution blends the LearningStation™ student assessment platform with the personalized digital learning platform from itslearning. FCS was selected by the U.S. Dept. of Education for the 2010 Investing in Innovation Grant (i3), at the time one of only twelve public school districts selected for the grant, and the sole recipient in Georgia.

The joint solution offers FCS educators standards-based learner plans as well as a content management system where activities, resources and more are matched to student performance levels, and individual learning styles. The LearningStation Assessment platform allows for both plain paper and online assessments, while also providing assessment results back into itslearning’s grade book and instructional system.

“After reviewing several options we selected LearningStation Insight based on the capability of the application to handle our current district benchmark assessments as well as the teacher’s day to day formatives and summatives," said Bailey Mitchell, Forsyth County CTIO."We were impressed with the support offered by the LearningStation team and the flexibility of Insight to meet Forsyth Schools’ specific needs.”

The multi-faceted partnership between Charlotte-based LearningStation and Boston-based itslearning has been formed to address the need in the market for a comprehensive, district-level assessment solution that provides educators with the ability to conduct secure online & plain paper testing, track student achievement, improve teacher accountability and more.
