Compass Learning, a leader in personalized learning, and Renaissance Learning, the market leader in K-12 assessment and learning analytics, today announced a strategic partnership that will make it easier for educators to personalize instruction to the needs of students. Available this fall, the integration of Renaissance Learning’s STAR reading and math data and the newly released suite of solutions from Compass Learning will provide educators powerful tools to assess each student’s proficiency and automatically assign personalized learning paths that align to both state and Common Core standards.
“In partnering with Renaissance Learning, we are combining the power of STAR’s learning analytics with the rigor and engagement of our interactive instructional content to ensure that students achieve record academic results,” said Eric Loeffel, CEO of Compass Learning. “Together, STAR and our brand new suite of learning acceleration software will help educators more efficiently and effectively understand each student and provide them with the resources to realize their full potential.”
The Renaissance Learning progression – a sequencing of skills a student must master from Kindergarten to high school graduation – is powered by insights from more than 54 million assessments taken each year by students at more than one third of U.S. schools. With this integration, results from STAR assessments combined with Compass Learning content will automatically deliver personalized learning paths for educators in three simple steps:
- Compass Learning imports test data from Renaissance Learning STAR assessments into Compass Learning software including Hybridge, Pathblazer and Gradbound.
- A learning path is assigned to each student based on the data.
- Students then complete a range of Compass Learning activities, built on decades of research about how kids engage and learn, and linked directly to their educational needs and abilities.
“Our STAR assessments provide an accurate portrait of each student’s instructional level, which is an important first step in developing individualized learning paths,” said Jack Lynch, CEO of Renaissance Learning. “Now, with Compass Learning as our partner, educators will have access to more ways to integrate assessment and personalized instructional planning. The increased efficiency and access to substantive aligned content amount to a big win for both teachers and students.”

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
