Renaissance Learning’s (www.renlearn.com) Web-based learning information system, Renaissance Place, gives teachers, principals and administrators easy access to the information they need to monitor progress, personalize instruction and ensure adequate yearly progress. It allows educators to visualize how each student is progressing, as well as provides timely, formative feedback so that interventions can be made before high-stakes tests. Three levels of assessment are addressed by the system: annual high-stakes testing, monthly progress and daily progress. In addition, student data is accessible on the Web at anytime, from any computer through the program.
