Standards planning features, added at the request of ISD 196 and other school districts, enhance the ability for teachers to measure, monitor and track student proficiency

(EDINA, MN) September 16, 2014 – Naiku, provider of award-winning, next-generation classroom assessment software, announced today the addition of curriculum mapping capability to help teachers plan for and track proficiency of learning standards.

Naiku‘s cloud-based software is used by schools and districts to quickly measure and track each student’s proficiency of standards in any subject and grade, and is used by individual teachers as well as by groups of teachers with common assessments. Using metacognitive tools of confidence, justification/journaling and reflection, Naiku uniquely provides teachers with a ready means of enabling teacher-student interactive feedback as part of everyday assessment to help drive student achievement.

With the addition of curriculum mapping, teachers can now use Naiku to comprehensively plan for the standards they expect to have their students learn, as well as measure, monitor, and track performance against these standards throughout the term so they can inform and personalize their instruction to ensure all students reach their potential.

“We’re excited to use the curriculum mapping functionality with Naiku this year” said Paul Olson, Secondary Math/STEM Lead Teacher for ISD 196 (Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan Public Schools). “We think it will be a nice addition to Naiku and will help our teachers better plan and be more successful in helping their students achieve proficiency in our learning targets.”

Naiku developed the curriculum mapping functionality at the request of ISD 196 and other customers. Greg Wright, CEO of Naiku, stated “ISD 196 adopted Naiku last school year, principally to enable common formative assessments to aid their PLCs and help teachers with standards-based teaching and learning. We are proud to announce these new features and support the efforts of ISD 196 and other educators in advancing teaching and learning through better assessment.”
