Sapling Learning is bringing its supplemental science software into high school classrooms.

Sapling Learning is a developer of electronic homework and assessment software focused specifically on the sciences. The company previously provided its digital learning and testing tools only for higher education, where it's in use by more than 300 professors at 200 individual institutions, according to the company.

Included in the initial lineup for high school students are online versions of Sapling Learning High School Biology, Sapling Learning High School Chemistry, Sapling Learning High School Integrated Physics and Chemistry, and Sapling Learning High School Physics.

The four offerings are designed for students in grades 9 through 12. They were developed specifically to address Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards and are aligned with their respective STAAR EOC Blueprints. The online tools offer real-time differentiated coaching, online quizzes, online homework exercises, unit study, and STAAR EOC practice and review.

A company spokesperson said that though the initial offerings are specifically for Texas, the scope of Sapling's move into K-12 will be national.

All four of the initial packages are available now. Further details can be found here.
