ATLANTA – October 23, 2017 – IO Education, a leader in helping educators use data to improve student outcomes, announces three product enhancements reinforcing its position as an innovator in education technology.

IO Education’s proprietary Virtual Data Wall is a revolutionary enhancement within student assessment platforms, enabling educators to visualize student assessment data, sort and filter on a variety of levels, and craft targeted instructional plans.

Once insights are uncovered and plans created, educators are able to use IO Education’s new bi-directional SMS messaging platform to take action by communicating directly with parents and students. Sending real-time updates and two-way communications is proven to increase parent engagement and student success. The platform also provides bi-directional translation technology to send and receive messages in the native language.

Finally, new dashboarding and reporting features are being introduced to both IO Education’s student assessment platform and its analytics solutions. The new capabilities include an improved visualization layer that presents data instantaneously, dynamic reporting filters with the ability to target subgroups, increased security features and role-based permissions to protect sensitive student information, enhanced drill-down capabilities and an expanded library of pre-built reports and dashboards.

“These new product updates are a significant step forward in our mission to continuously innovate in the classroom while providing educators with user-friendly solutions,” said Eric Miller, Vice President of Product Management of IO Education.
