All classroom applications, including SAS Curriculum Pathways, accessed with one user ID, one password

Free SAS® Curriculum Pathways® digital learning resources are now just one familiar login away. New integration with Clever Instant Login eliminates juggling multiple user IDs and passwords by connecting different applications with school and district student information systems.

Districts can set up SAS Curriculum Pathways with Clever Instant Login today. And starting this fall, teachers won’t even need to manually add students to SAS Curriculum Pathways rosters. Clever automatically maps class rosters to a teacher.

“While the increase in digital classroom resources is a boon to learning, it can cause administrative headaches,” said Scott McQuiggan, Director, SAS Curriculum Pathways. “Clever’s single sign-on and rostering will make it easier than ever to use SAS Curriculum Pathways, so teachers can focus on students.”

SAS Curriculum Pathways provides resources in English language arts, mathematics, sci­ence, social studies and Spanish for traditional, virtual and home schools. Built for how students learn, SAS Curriculum Pathways online curriculum resources have been proven to increase student learning and teacher effectiveness by targeting higher-order thinking skills. Nearly 190,000 teachers and students already use the free digital resources for K-12.

Through Clever access to SAS Curriculum Pathways, teachers can instantly choose from more than a thousand interactive, web-based curriculum resources. Each can be differentiated to meet varied needs. Learner-centered activities incorporate formative and summative assessments, and link to state standards.

“Clever Instant Login makes great learning resources easily available to schools,” said Tyler Bosmeny, CEO of Clever. “This partnership with SAS Curriculum Pathways puts some of the best learning content at the fingertips of millions of students and teachers.”

In addition to its many digital learning resources, SAS offers analytics and business intelligence software that is used at more than 3,000 educational institutions worldwide for teaching, research and administration. SAS has more than three decades of experience working with educational institutions.
