OnCourse Debuts Student Performance Analysis Tool
Educational application service provider to public and private schools OnCourse Systems for Education (Gibbstown, NJ) has launched Student Stats, which helps teachers and administrators monitor student performance via access and analysis of standardized testing data in order to ease No Child Left Behind Act compliance.
"The No Child Left Behind Act has put significant accountability requirements on teachers and administrators for monitoring and addressing student performance," said OnCourse CMO Georgia Gallicchio.
Student Stats is designed to ease tracking of individual student, as well as school- and district-wide performance against standards; identify at risk students; understand teachers' training needs; and generate custom reports. School districts can upload state and benchmark test data to the Web-based system, and aggregate and disaggregate the data in order to compare current and prior-year data, as well as compare those results via subgroups, grade levels and schools.
Student Stat also can be used with OnCourse Lesson Planner and Grade Book to further enhance their analysis capabilities to ascertain the impact of standards-based instruction and assessment.
"We have found OnCourse to be very receptive over the last five years in meeting the needs of our school district with our implementation of OnCourse Lesson Planner," said Joseph F. Canataro, Ph.D., superintendent for New Jersey's Deptford Township Public Schools. "We are confident that OnCourse will facilitate expansion of the present capabilities of Student Stats as our district's need for more sophisticated data analysis will undoubtedly necessitate."
Using OnCourse's ASP model, Students Stats is available 24/7 via the Internet.
