 The Los Angeles Unified School District board has authorized a 5 year, $24 million contract with CORE K12, a division of CORE ECS. As outlined in the terms of the contract, CORE K12 will deliver its Assessment Center, item customization, progress monitoring, and on-site training to LAUSD teachers and administrators through 2015.

“Over the past few years, we have had the pleasure of working with LAUSD to create a dynamic, periodic assessment program using our Assessment Center and customized item banks.” said Kevin Howell, President, CORE K12 Education.

Assessment Center allows teachers to create a variety of assessments (such as progress monitoring) using the customized California item bank. Assessments may cover K12 subjects including math, English Language Arts, science, and history/social science.

The ability to turn around reports immediately after students have completed assessments allows teachers to tailor their instruction to the needs of students. The program also allows students to access their test results in a secure environment, providing error analysis for missed questions and on-demand resources such as skill sheets and other activities.

“We believe that assessment drives discovery, and are very excited about continuing the good work we have started with this important client and education partner,” added Howell.

Measured Progress Awarded Contract for Oklahoma Assessments

DOVER, N.H.—October 9, 2017—The Oklahoma State Department of Education (SDE) has awarded Measured Progress a potential six-year contract for its Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP). The new contract provides yearly assessments based on Oklahoma Academic Standards for grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and mathematics, and for science in grades 5 and 8. This contract continues the strong working relationship between the Oklahoma SDE and Measured Progress, which began in 2013 with the award for the English language arts and mathematics portions of the former Oklahoma College and Career Readiness Assessment program (replaced by OSTP). In 2014 and 2015, the state again chose Measured Progress to support two more programs in the OSTP. Measured Progress worked on the Oklahoma Core Curriculum tests in science, geography, and social studies as well as the high-school End-of-Instruction (EOI) tests.
