Edmentum (formerly PLATO Learning) has released Study Island NWEA MAP Link, a new fully integrated solution that uses a student's Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment results to create an individualized learning path, delivered through the Study Island program. Study Island and NWEA customers can now easily pinpoint academic strengths and weaknesses through their NWEA MAP test results, and then automatically target those areas with Study Island's standards-based content.
Following a four-month pilot with districts in Arizona and Kentucky in 2012, the new program has officially launched to schools and districts throughout the United States for grades three through eight, in math and reading.
The Study Island NWEA MAP Link will be available, at an additional cost, to any school or district that uses both MAP assessments and the Study Island program. Edmentum also will be demonstrating the new program at the Florida Educational Technology Conference 2013 (booth #315), Jan. 28-31 in Orlando, Fla., and at the Texas Computer Education Association 2013 Convention & Exposition (#1617), Feb. 6-8 in Austin, Texas.
