Winter Park, Fla. — Dec. 1, 2015 — The Unify assessment platform from Performance Mattershas been named a “Readers’ Choice Top Product” by District Administration magazine. The winners were selected from 2,100-plus nominations from the magazine’s readers — K12 education administrators and leaders — for products they believe are making a positive difference in education.

“Schools are required to test students in more courses than ever before, but finding and administering high quality assessments for all these courses just isn’t affordable,” said Woody Dillaha, CEO and co-founder of Performance Matters. “Unify makes an impossible task possible by connecting the talents of educators — within a district or across multiple districts or states — so they can pool their resources and work as a team to create and share high quality assessment content. This not only saves districts time and money, but it gives educators the data they need to make decisions that improve student instruction and achievement.”

Unify is the first social platform that allows educators to author and administer authentic assessments, analyze student data from multiple sources, and act on that information to improve teaching and learning. The platform’s modular technology incorporates a workflow engine that supports the end-to-end process of assessment development, including blueprinting, item authoring and review, test generation and test administration. In addition, Unify is IMS Certified and incorporates the current Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) standards to ensure educators are able to author and administer the new technology-enhanced item types, in addition to traditional multiple choice items.

District Administration’s Readers’ Choice Top Products award program informs superintendents and other school district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel in a variety of areas, such as technology, sustainability and curriculum instruction. “It was inspiring to learn about the products being used in today’s schools that are helping districts succeed,” said JD Solomon, District Administration’s editorial director. “All of our 2015 honorees should be very proud of this achievement.”
