Scantron Announces Alliance with Curriculum Advantage to Enhance Personalized Learning for Students

Scantron Corporation has announced an alliance with Curriculum Advantage, Inc., developer of Classworks®, an online instructional solution for kindergarten through ninth grade. The alliance integrates Scantron® Performance Series® and Scantron® Achievement Series® assessment solutions with Classworks, expanding the resources available to support educators in providing relevant, individualized instruction based upon student assessment results.

“Scantron is committed to developing opportunities that integrate assessment results with high quality instructional material,” said Marissa Larsen, Vice President of Portfolio Planning & Strategy for Scantron. “The linking of assessment and instruction enables educators to target their planning for individual, group and classroom instructional needs. This helps students grow with enrichment and remediation learning opportunities. We are delighted to partner with Classworks in this endeavor.”

Performance Series provides ongoing, relevant information in reading, language arts, mathematics, and life sciences. These fact-based insights help teachers more easily understand their students’ positions in the learning continuum and more quickly implement teaching plans to address difficulties. Achievement Series utilizes a host of delivery methods — mobile, online or paper — to administer tests and analyze reports that show performance at all levels within a district.

Classworks integrates with both of the Scantron solutions, taking the precise assessment data provided on individual students to create customized assignments. Whether the goal of districts is to deliver instruction based on the standards a student is struggling to learn, or to address explicit skills a student lacks to be on pace from year-to-year, Classworks provides unique individualized plans to strengthen comprehension, grow skills and accelerate students to higher performance levels.

“We are excited to continue expanding Classworks’ ability to put a district’s assessment data to work in a way that builds teacher capacity and improves student achievement,” said Melissa Sinunu, President of Classworks. “Instead of asking teachers to find the resources needed to meet each student where they are, this integration automates the process for all students,” she explained.
