WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (June 26, 2017) – Renaissance®, the leader in K-12 learning analytics, is proud to announce the launch of Renaissance Flow 360™, an innovative solution designed to make assessment-driven personalized learning a reality. The program, which was recently announced as a CODiE Award finalist in two categories (Best Cross-Curricular Solution and Best Learning Relationship Management Solution), completed a year-long early adopter initiative, culminating in several successful implementations of Renaissance Flow 360 in districts across the United States.

In addition to the early adopter implementations, Renaissance has recently collaborated with the El Paso Independent School District (EPISD) on an implementation of Renaissance Flow 360. Juan Cabrera, superintendent of El Paso Independent School District, says Renaissance Flow 360 is the next step his district is taking on the path to creating an active learning environment for each of the district’s 60,000 students.

“We initially adopted the Renaissance Star 360®assessment program district-wide to track and document our student growth and achievement data over time,” Cabrera says. “The implementation of Renaissance Flow 360 signals a continuation of this journey. We know that in order for our students to be successful, they need to be fully engaged in their learning and this program will create the kind of personalized learning that not only leads to improved student engagement, but to educational outcomes to match this expectation.”

Renaissance Flow 360 seamlessly connects assessment, planning, instruction, and practice in one place, allowing educators to drive and monitor growth for every student in their district. Fundamental to Renaissance Flow 360 is the Renaissance Growth Alliance™, a collaboration with thought-leading instructional providers that will leverage broad and precise views of student performance. “Our research—and studies across the K-12 education market—show that differentiated instruction and personalized practice lead to increased student engagement and improved outcomes,” says Mike Evans, interim CEO at Renaissance. “However, we’ve also learned that teachers spend a tremendous amount of their personal time differentiating instruction for their students—an average of six to eight hours a week collecting and manipulating data, creating lesson plans, and searching for the right instructional resources to personalize learning for each student.

By using Renaissance Flow 360, educators get that time back by connecting key data from assessments, instruction, and practice and converting that data into a unified measured of student mastery. This gives educators time to do what they do best—connect with students and create phenomenal learning experiences in the classroom.”

Renaissance Flow 360 allows educators to assess with accuracy in both English and Spanish, plan with precision to identify the skills that students are ready to learn next, and instruct with insight leveraging the power of the Renaissance Growth Alliance.

The program includes a robust Mastery Dashboard, where educators have deep insight into student mastery by domain, standard, skill, or subskill. Educators can see this view at the classroom, school, and district levels—making it possible for teachers to decide which students need additional instruction or practice and giving administrators a clear picture of achievement and growth across the district.

SXSWedu: Renaissance Launches “Renaissance Growth Platform”

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (March 6, 2017) – Renaissance®, the leader in K-12 learning analytics, announces that nearly 20 million students—one-third of United States schools—are actively using its innovative, ground breaking Renaissance Growth Platform™. The platform integrates the company’s award winning portfolio: Renaissance Star360® assessment solutions, the Renaissance Accelerated Reader 360® reading practice solution, and the Renaissance Accelerated Math® practice solution. “Over a four-year period we conducted exhaustive research and interviewed hundreds of educators and learned that many of them are struggling to accurately measure student growth on a daily basis,” said Mark Angel, chief technology officer at Renaissance. “We also confirmed that they want to differentiate and personalize instruction, but it’s difficult for them to do so in a way that’s scalable in the classroom. Our Growth Platform makes both of these goals attainable for educators by allowing them to set goals and monitor student progress with greater efficiency.” Released at the beginning of 2017, the Renaissance Growth Platform was built with three things in mind: flexibility, efficiency and usability. In parallel to building the Growth Platform, Renaissance rebuilt its complete portfolio to take advantage of the platform’s robust, scalable architecture. The power of the complete integrated suite manifests in several ways, including a workflow engine that allows educators to manage and deliver all assignments from Star assessments to Accelerated Reader 360 and Accelerated Math practice through a simple-to-use student inbox.
