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.
