Utah-based iAssessment, known for its digital collaboration and assessment solutions for schools, has changed its name to TrueNorthLogic, the company said.

Focused on using data to boost student achievement, TrueNorthLogic provides vendor-agnostic, non-proprietary systems designed to automate teacher professional development, grant applications and programs, federally mandated assessment and data management, increased teacher-student collaboration, and the unification of K-12 school and district web portals.

TrueNorthLogic’s line of products includes the TrueAchieve Teacher Development System, a customizable professional development tool that allows teachers to design, follow, and measure their ongoing professional training electronically; the TrueLife Student Development System, a set of digital communication tools that enables students to share and interact with classmates and peers in school and across the globe; and the TrueGuide Administrator Support System, an automated management system developed to help administrators apply for grants, conduct staff development, and make sound, efficient decisions.

The company says its new name was inspired by Polaris, or the North Star, which people throughout the ages have used to seek direction in charting a course. “Like the North Star, TrueNorthLogic aims to help teachers, students, administrators, and parents navigate a path that leads to their success,” according to a company press release.
