Curriculum Advantage announced that it has purchased OpenBook Anywhere, a collection of research-based ways to teach English to remedial and non-English speakers, from OpenBook Learning. Curriculum Advantage will integrate the OpenBook content into its Classworks curriculum. With this purchase, Curriculum Advantage has expanded its catalog of remediation resources with content specifically for English as a Second Language students, the company said. Curriculum Advantage also announced that it has teamed up with AlterNet Performance of Mechanicsburg, Pa., to create a seamless interface between Classworks and AlterNet’s Performance Tracker, a web-based platform that aggregates and disaggregates assessment data from state, national, and local benchmark tests. The partnership gives Classworks customers a new tool to analyze data from high-stakes assessments, further assess each student’s proficiency in math and reading, and automatically create an individual Classworks learning plan to address areas of need for each student, Curriculum Advantage said.
