Complementary formative assessment solutions will help educators better leverage tools

IO Education and Educator’s Assessment Data Management System (EADMS), a provider of K-12 assessment and data management software, have merged to better leverage online formative assessment capabilities.

With EADMS’ fully integrated assessment and data management capabilities, IO Education will continue to strengthen its ability to utilize all student data to drive educator insight and improve educational outcomes. These complementary solutions will give educators an integrated solution across assessment, analytics and reporting, talent management, professional development and classroom management.

EADMS offers a comprehensive formative assessment and data management solution that provides educators at all levels immediate results to measure student performance, and is optimized for online and paper-based assessment. EADMS enables K-12 districts to personalize instruction by providing the tools to identify performance gaps that prevent students from achieving standards mastery.

“The EADMS platform will deliver instantaneous, invaluable data to IO Education users, so they can leverage it most effectively to drive instructional practices,” said Anthony Tooley, founder of EADMS. “EADMS customers will now benefit from a comprehensive data analytics solution from IO Education that will further empower educators and administrators to personalize learning and improve outcomes.”

As IO Education incorporates EADMS into its product suite, Mr. Tooley will lead the company’s assessment division.

“We believe that formative assessment data provides critical and timely information to personalize learning for students,” said Michael Williamson, Chief Executive Officer of IO Education. “A key driver of student growth involves equipping teachers with the ability to easily assess and measure student mastery in real-time to take personalized action for each student.”

With IO Education, schools and districts can break down data silos and aggregate state, district, classroom and assessment data to develop a rich understanding of student growth. Learn more at
