Chicago-based Otus, a student performance platform designed specifically for K-12, has released several product enhancements to support school organizations initiatives with standards. The system now provides options to associate assessments built on the system with state, common core, NGSS, or custom standards, providing real-time analytics on student’s proficiency and growth toward mastery. Chris Hull, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, cites the nation-wide movement toward standards-based grading as the key to prioritizing this development. “The ability to easily collect, analyze, and act on student data measuring the proficiency of standards is a common issue many schools face. With these updates, we’re making it easier than ever to see where students are on targeted standards in real time so educators can identify needs and respond accordingly.” With over a dozen school districts in Illinois adopting the platform in the last year, Otus’ integrated learning, assessment, and data management tools are helping schools create a data-rich 21st-century learning environment for teachers, administrators, students, and parents.
