NYC, New York, April 19 2016. Learnosity, a leading provider of B2B assessment technology, and Fishtree, a next generation, personalized learning platform, today announced a collaborative partnership that will bring personalized learning and world-class assessments to K-12 and postsecondary students everywhere. This joint effort aims to help educators deepen their understanding of student subject mastery, learning preferences, achievement, and other learning outcomes in order to cultivate and scale successful personalized learning ecosystems. Fishtree joins a rapidly expanding list of educational companies that are choosing to build their assessment offering using Learnosity's assessment technology.
By combining Learnosity's powerful assessment APIs and Fishtree's leading Learning Relationship Management (LRM) platform, K-12 and postsecondary institutions can now design and administer personalized diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments using 55 Technology-Enhanced Items (TEIs) aligned with Common Core, PARCC, Smarter Balanced Practice Tests and othe standards.
"We're extremely excited to announce this partnership between Learnosity and Fishtree", said Learnosity CEO and co-founder, Gavin Cooney. "We have a lot of respect for Fishtree, having overcome the challenge of scaling personalized learning. We also share an appreciation for the power of analytics to further target and personalize instruction and learning. We're looking forward to working in conjunction with an acknowledged leader in this area and contributing to their adaptive learning platform."
In addition to a vast library of technology-enhanced test items and templates, educators can add test banks they already use, construct their own assessments using advanced features such as handwriting recognition, rich multimedia, and "hints and sample questions." Schools, districts, and institutions interested in bringing personalized learning and assessments to their campuses can expect robust data intelligence dashboards (student, instructor, and administrator views) and an intuitive interface—optimized for quick and seamless integration into LMS, SIS, and other legacy systems.
Terry Nealon, Fishtree CEO and co-founder, says "We are continuously working to form the most intelligent of education solutions. Learnosity shares our vision for scalability in education and assessment and by leveraging their assessment technology enables us to provide robust and highly scalable assessments to our users."
