Triumph Learning and NWEA partner to provide differentiated instruction through correlated MAP data
New York, New York –September 24, 2013 – Triumph Learning, a leading provider of supplementary educational solutions for K-12 students, teachers, and administrators, announces a new partnership to deliver targeted and personalized instruction and practice. Using results from the highly regarded Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) from NWEA, educators can assign differentiated content in Triumph Learning’s web-based Readiness for Common Core and truly target areas of academic weaknesses and strengths based on MAP assessment data. NWEA is recognized for valid, reliable, accurate, and comprehensive data that inform each student’s optimal learning path. Triumph Learning is pleased to partner with NWEA to make that data directly actionable, by linking assessment results to educational content that targets the needs of individual learners. The rich online content in Readiness for Common Core provides proven effective instruction, lessons and practice to meet the particular needs of individual students. And Readiness tools support the full spectrum of Common Core adoption, including resources for those in the early stages of transition, as well as those who are well along the implementation path.
“In partnering with NWEA and using MAP data, we take Readiness, a content-rich product, and make it even more powerful,” said Rick Noble, President and CEO of Triumph Learning. “With thousands of instructional assets available through Readiness for Common Core, teachers, parents, and above all, students, will benefit from targeted and individualized instruction, practice, and assessments, delivered instantly in the classroom or at home.”
“NWEA has as its mission Partnering to help all kids learn,” said Matt Chapman, CEO and President of NWEA. “We are excited to work with Triumph Learning to help more students get the personalized learning they deserve through the use of highly accurate MAP data combined with powerful instructional materials for the Common Core.”
The MAP correlated Readiness for Common Core for Grades 1-12, in English language arts and mathematics, will launch to schools and districts nationwide starting in 2014. Using this powerful tool, educators and parents will be able to ensure that each student is benefitting from the instructional resources and strategies that suit them best. It will be made available, as an option, to any school or district that uses both MAP assessments and Readiness for Common Core.
