Sandy, Utah — June 20, 2017 — With single sign-on (SSO), K-12 educators can save time and energy accessing the applications and resources they use most. Now, thanks to a new partnership between Performance Matters and ClassLink, educators have a new way to gain fast, secure, easy access to Performance Matters’Student Growth andEducator Developmentsolutionsfrom their computer, tablet, or smartphone.
The alliance, which was formed to meet customers’ requests, will provide educators who use ClassLink’s OneClick technology with secure SSO access to the Performance Matters Platform. This is the latest in a series of partnerships that Performance Matters has formed with industry-leading technology providers to maximize the functionality of its cohesive, analytics-driven platform for schools and districts nationwide.
“With today’s rigorous standards and accountability requirements, we need to do everything we can to help teachers be more effective and efficient with their instruction. With ClassLink, teachers can link directly to Performance Matters instead of logging in through the district website, which makes it easier to access the data they need to improve their instruction,” said Brian McMahon, a performance data analyst with the School District of Indian River County in Florida. “Having single sign-on is a timesaver as well. Even if it saves just one second per login to Performance Matters, when you multiply that by 1,500 employees, it adds up pretty quickly.”
ClassLink empowers students and teachers with instant access to their learning resources. ClassLink® OneClick® includes a library of over 5,000 single sign-on apps and instant links to the file folders at school and on Google, Office 365, and Dropbox cloud drives. ClassLink OneRoster™ easily and securely delivers class rosters to any publisher using open technology standards. ClassLink Analytics gives decision makers the usage data they need. Accessible from any computer, tablet or smartphone, ClassLink is ideal for 1to1 and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives.
