OnCourse Expands Support for State Standards


Online education tool provider OnCourse Systems now supports education standards for all 50 states and has integrated those standards into its Lesson Planner, Grade Book, and Student Stats offerings, according to the company.

OnCourse also will instantly update those tools to conform to new and changing state standards, said Georgia Gallicchio, OnCourse's chief marketing officer.

"With educational standards constantly being added and updated, it is difficult for schools to remain up to date and comply with these standards," she explained. "Now, our solutions will put these standards at the fingertips of teachers across the nation when creating their lesson plans and recording grades."

Now OnCourse Lesson Planner--currently used in 150 districts in 24 states--helps teachers in all states ensure lessons adhere to standards in just a few clicks of the computer mouse. Likewise, it helps administrators generate instructional activity reports to help them make more informed decisions.

OnCourse Grade Book lets teachers easily plan assignments to meet relevant educational standards and helps administrators generate standardized report cards that show how students are performing vis a vis specific state requirements.
