Independence School District Adds Matrix to its Academic Platform

6-21-2011
Lawrence, Ks. –  AllofE Solutions and Independence School District have chosen to broaden their partnership with the addition of another intuitive academic platform for the school district. Independence will integrate the dashboarding and performance analysis tool, Matrix, to utilize information received from assessments and strengthen current strategies within the district to improve the overall education for students.
 
Matrix, introduced in November of 2010, is one branch of AllofE’s academic learning platform that allows for the easy to read analysis of assessment performance data. Districts are able to analyze assessment scores, curriculum standards alignment, overall curriculum effectiveness and more.
 
While immensely important, data provided to school districts is difficult to interpret on its own often making it problematic to use. Matrix is a data mining and performance analysis solution that uses the raw data received from assessments and turns it into clear, interpretable information. In addition to providing a way to view data clearly and concisely, it helps with the understanding of longitudinal trends to promote informed decision making.
 
The Missouri district has chosen to implement the system alongside use of AllofE’s district-wide curriculum management system, eCurriculum. Use of both systems along with the professional development system, Inservic,e and web-site content management system, ContentM, will provide the district with an unparalleled, innovative and flexible teaching platform.
