Boston, MA – Oct. 5, 2017 — The latest updates to the award-winning learning management system (LMS) itslearningwill provide educators with a more comprehensive reporting solution that makes it easier for them to acquire the insights they need to evaluate and improve instructional activities for students.

The system currently warehouses grade and assessment data so as to expand and enhance the ways in which educators can analyze student performance. Now, using itslearning’s advanced reporting tools, users can review reports across schools and courses, on historical data and trends as well as detailed accounts of current platform use, curriculum management and student progress.

“With these new updates, we have developed an industry-leading capacity for advanced analytical insights,” said Arne Bergby, CEO of itslearning. “Our cutting-edge reporting approach makes it possible for users to mine data and align reports in a multitude of ways depending on their individual needs. This is part of what differentiates itslearning from competitors — an emphasis on flexibility and customization.”

For example, users can go from a course-wide assessment trends report, which helps them better identify students at risk, to a more specific activity status report for monitoring students’ progress through a particular course and use of that course’s content. Educators also can access a new comprehensive individual progress and report including time spent online completing tasks and time spent in each course.

“We also designed these reporting updates to enhance teacher’s understanding of each student progress in their course,” said Bergby.“Both our advanced and standard reports include detailed status and trends at point of use for teachers. Our aim is to provide 360-degree report visibility that makes for just-in-time support to stretch students learning opportunities if they are ready and support intervention as needed. Students will benefit from better understanding progress and how best to meet their learning goals.”
