Mobile grading app joins forces with student information system, enabling teachers and administrators to take action based on real-time achievement data

BOSTON(May 12, 2015) – Quick Key, the mobile assessment software that improves student performance and eliminates hand grading, today announced a collaboration with Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, through an independent software vendor (ISV) partnership agreement that enables educators to quickly score assessments using Quick Key’s mobile scanner app and instantly upload results to the PowerSchool student information system.

"Quick Key and PowerSchool are a perfect match,” said Kyle Hansen, PowerSchool Administrator at American Leadership Academy in Spanish Fork, Utah. “When I found Quick Key last year, I loved it. Now that class rosters and assessment results are automatically synced between the two platforms, tracking and analyzing student assessment data has become truly effortless. That feature alone made me a Quick Key customer for life, not to mention the amazing tech support team.”

The integration enables educators and administrators to take action based on real-time data, to identify which students need help and which lessons need to be re-taught. Hours previously spent hand-grading assignments can now be spent focusing on how to best meet individual students’ needs.

“Integrating Quick Key with PowerSchool is a testament to our belief in service, collaboration and quality tools that truly work well in classrooms,” said Walter O. Duncan, 15-year veteran teacher and co-founder of Quick Key Mobile. “This collaboration puts the power of teaching back into the capable hands of teachers.”

PowerSchool, the most widely used Web-based student information system, supports more than 13 million students globally. PowerSchool enables today's educators to make timely decisions that impact student performance while creating a collaborative environment for parents, teachers and students to work together in preparing 21st century learners for the future.

“We are pleased to welcome Quick Key to the PowerSchool ISV Partner program,” said Oliver Wreford, vice president of product and marketing at Pearson School Systems. “Quick Key’s integration with PowerSchool provides a solution that puts formative assessment results into the hands of educators in near real-time, enabling them to immediately analyze student performance and make informed decisions about ongoing student instruction.” 

PowerSchool users will be able to access their Quick Key Dashboard from within the PowerSchool dashboard, and vice versa. Data, including class rosters and student assessment scores, can be easily transferred from one platform to the other. Districts can implement Quick Key without upgrades and the mobile app can be used without Wi-Fi. Quick Key’s Team Management and Quiz Sharing features allow district and school administrators to deliver standards-aligned assessments to all teachers within their district while ensuring the security of answer keys.
