Turning Technologies has announced a new integration between Insight 360 and the Acuity InFormative Assessment solution, a comprehensive K-12 Common Core assessment and supplemental instruction solution. The integration is available on the latest Insight 360 update, allowing educators to quickly review student assessment results and make informed, actionable decisions on instructional focus.

The Acuity InFormative Assessment solution from CTB/McGraw-Hill immediately impacts student achievement with seamless integration through innovative student response devices. Acuity assessments are aligned with the Common Core State Standards, supporting district and school instructional improvement goals with valid, reliable assessment data. Since its release, Acuity has been deployed in thousands of schools and helped millions of students. Acuity’s integration with student response technology provides teachers the flexibility to obtain instant knowledge of student performance at the point of instruction.

Insight 360 is the first completely mobile classroom instruction system to administer and simplify content planning, delivery and real-time assessment, according to the announcement. The system leverages existing content, teaching methodologies, and classroom technology to provide greater interaction between educators and individual students for a more-personalized learning experience. Insight 360 is designed to support the latest technology used in education, such as the iPad or web-enabled devices and provide educators with the flexibility to manage their desktop, open files, launch assessments, annotate content, or review reports from anywhere in the classroom.
