Follett Software Company, an integrated digital learning solution provider, and Assessment Technology Incorporated (ATI), provider of online instructional improvement tools and data analysis, announced today the signing of a teaming agreement that will allow the two companies to jointly pursue opportunities with K-12 educators.
The education technology companies will leverage their experience in data warehousing, instructional improvement system, state-of-the-art Item Response Theory (IRT) measurement techniques, and professional development by offering educators a complete solution through Follett Software’s TetraData data warehousing and ATI’s standards-based, research-driven Galileo K-12 Online Instructional Improvement System (IIS).
Follett Software’s TetraData is a resource for data warehousing, analysis and reporting solutions to meet school districts’ data-driven decision-making (D3M) needs. Typically, TetraData is used by districts to analyze proficiency and growth, measure curriculum and program effectiveness, evaluate staff alignment and development impact, proactively identify and monitor at-risk students, and evaluate school climate.
For more than a decade, ATI’s Galileo Online technology has provided data to inform educational decision-making, as well as tools to enhance overall effectiveness in the instructional process. The Galileo K-12 Online Instructional Improvement System (IIS) makes it possible for educators to deploy a comprehensive, research-based and standards-aligned instructional improvement system.
