Harcourt Education has announced that it has acquired Achieve Data Solutions (ADS), a provider of Web-based data analysis and reporting systems for schools.
ADS is best known for DataDirector, a Web-based data management system that enables school administrators and teachers to report and analyze testing and other data to meet AYP reporting requirements and monitor student progress to inform instruction and remediation decisions. ADS also provides a test item bank platform used by school districts and teachers to generate and administer formative assessments.
ADS will be part of Harcourt Connected Learning, a newly-formed division of Harcourt Education. The mission of Harcourt Connected Learning is to provide educators with best-of-breed technology-driven productivity and teaching tools, and to coordinate development and sales of tailored, comprehensive solutions, drawing on assets and resources from across Harcourt divisions. Classroom Connect, a provider of online professional development for teachers and technology applications programs for students, will also be part of the new division.
