SCOTTSDALE, AZ (PRWEB) JANUARY 10, 2017
Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning, today announced the launch of UpSmart™, a supplemental solution designed to help all students in grades 6–8 demonstrate mastery of state standards in English language arts and math. Using a completely adaptive learning engine and technology-enhanced assessments, UpSmart provides the right level of instruction and practice on each topic for each student.
“Even great teachers using the best curriculum find that students struggle to transfer what they are taught in the classroom to high-stakes tests,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “UpSmart is the ultimate teaching assistant. It combines the ability to reinforce skills that have just been taught in class, while returning critical standards-based performance data to teachers so they can help students in real-time.”
UpSmart personalizes the learning environment for every student as a companion to the core curriculum or as a test-readiness program, and can be used in variety of settings – as part of a classroom-based blended learning program, in an advisory period or study skills class, or as homework.
UpSmart drives mastery of state standards in English language arts and math through:
Teachers can easily implement UpSmart as a supplement to their core curriculum, and the tool can be customized to align with each unique classroom scope and sequence. Teachers can assign, reorder, and prioritize topics in the way they prefer. In addition, real-time reporting on student progress helps teachers understand the skills and standards students have mastered, which students may be struggling, and how students can be grouped for re-teaching.
