11/13/17

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carnegie Learning, Inc., research-proven pioneers in the mathematics learning space, and NWEA, the not-for profit creator of cutting-edge assessment solutions, have partnered to create a customized and personalized math learning solution. Teachers can now instantly integrate MAP Growth assessment results directly into MATHia, allowing the digital learning platform to adapt for each student, and provide a personalized learning experience that increases student engagement, understanding and ownership of their learning.

Used in more than 8,500 schools and districts in the U.S. and internationally with more than 10 million students, MAP Growth is the leading assessment for measuring what students know and are ready to learn next. Schools can use MAP Growth assessment data to instantly identify areas where a student’s academic performance is strong and where support is required. MATHia, powered by research-proven artificial intelligence and cognitive science research, then places students in a personalized learning sequence focused on the content areas where the student needs further instruction. With the MAP Growth and MATHia integration, instruction is more focused and robust, providing each student with the most impactful math education possible.

With the linkage of MAP Growth and MATHia:

  • Teachers are empowered to offer smarter differentiated instruction, without the additional work of analyzing MAP Growth data and adjusting curriculum for every student.
  • Students are presented with MATHia problems specifically designed to address their learning needs, identified by their MAP Growth assessment results identifying what needs more attention.
  • Teachers and administrators are able to monitor student academic growth in real time and ensure students master the content needed to get them back to, and even beyond, grade level.

“This partnership is a complete game-changer for educators in need of a better math learning solution. With MAP Growth and MATHia, we’ve seamlessly combined K-12’s best growth assessment data with the best math learning content and platform,” said Barry Malkin, CEO of Carnegie Learning. “Teachers will see an immediate and significant impact. As an organization passionate about transforming math learning, we’re thrilled to offer educators an easier way to leverage the intelligent MAP Growth assessment as part of an adaptive, technology-driven action plan.”

A computer adaptive assessment, MAP Growth measures what students know and informs what they’re ready to learn next by dynamically adjusting to each student’s performance. It helps teachers pinpoint the specific needs of each student, and informs instruction to support student growth and learning. Real-time, accessible reports provide educators with actionable and reliable data to track growth, and help every student learn throughout the year.

“NWEA is committed to providing flexibility to educators by ensuring MAP Growth can complement and be used with a wide range of learning platforms and software to support student growth,” said Matt Chapman, CEO of NWEA. “We’re proud to partner with Carnegie Learning to help educators use MAP Growth data to efficiently and effectively enhance math instruction and learning.”
