SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA (April 30, 2013) – eInstruction, a global education software and technology company, announced today the integration of Insight 360™ with Illuminate Data & Assessment Management System™ (DnA) to provide educators with a simple, easy, and seamless way to upload rosters, assessments, and results.
This new integration with Insight 360 enables educators to access dynamic student rosters, deliver teacher or district created assessments from a simple drop-down menu, and upload data to Illuminate’s web-based platform for detailed analysis. There is no longer a need to import or export class rosters or results using .xml or .csv files making instruction, assessment, and analysis a more streamlined process that saves educators valuable time.
Insight 360 is the all-in-one classroom instruction system that facilitates and simplifies instructional content planning and delivery and real-time assessment. The powerful, easy-to-use software enables educators to boost student engagement and gain immediate results on comprehension through formative and summative assessment using a variety of mobile devices such as eInstruction student response pads (clickers), smartphones, tablets, and the iPad®.
Illuminate DnA is a complete instructional management solution that provides user-friendly tools for assessment building and administration, data analysis and reporting, and curriculum development. Built from an educator’s perspective, teachers can easily create formative tests utilizing common core item types linked to lessons and content aligned to standards. Since DnA is web-based, the system supports traditional and blended learning environments giving students and parents secure access to assignments, grades, test results and instructional resources.
“The development of strong relationships with our educational partners ultimately benefits the end user. By combining our individual strengths and capabilities, we are able to bring forward superior products that are more user-friendly and meet the needs of both educators in the classroom and administrators at a district level,” said Rich Fennessy, President and CEO at eInstruction.
Educators have long recognized the value of formative and summative assessment for effective instruction and achievement. Now, student performance can be evaluated quickly and effectively in real-time and over a period of weeks or months with longitudinal reporting and analysis. Classroom instruction can then be personalized or differentiated for individual students or groups based on performance.
“DnA’s integration with Insight 360 enhances its functionality by providing schools the ability to administer assessments quickly and efficiently,” said Lane Rankin, CEO of Illuminate Education, Inc. “This is beneficial to teachers because it saves them time and resources that can be redirected back to their students.”
