NoRedInk Integrates MAP Data for Adaptive Learning
NoRedInk has partnered with the
Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) to integrate data from the latter's Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) with its adaptive curriculum engine.
Using the MAP data, NoRedInk will then recommend learning paths appropriate for each student.
"Used in 1 in 4 school districts nationwide, NoRedInk uses students' interests to help them master difficult concepts in grammar, usage,
mechanics and style," according to a news release. "The online curriculum adapts to strengths and weaknesses with tutorials and unlimited
practice, then aggregates the data to help teachers make instructional decisions and track growth. School administrators receive monthly
reports allowing them to see the improvement in student outcomes."
"We're elated that school districts will be able to pair their assessment data from MAP with NoRedInk's learning engine," said Jeff Scheur,
founder and CEO of NoRedInk, in a prepared statement. "We're firm believers in data-driven instruction, and students, teachers and schools will
benefit tremendously from this partnership."
