Carnegie Learning and NWEA Partner to Provide Customized Learning Paths for Math Instruction

Informed by MAP Growth assessment results, students receive content
aligned with their learning needs on the adaptive learning platform
MATHia

PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#STEM–Carnegie Learning, Inc., research-proven pioneers in the mathematics
learning space, and NWEA, the not-for profit creator of cutting-edge
assessment solutions, have partnered to create a customized and
personalized math learning solution. Teachers can now instantly
integrate MAP Growth assessment results directly into MATHia, allowing
the digital learning platform to adapt for each student, and provide a
personalized learning experience that increases student engagement,
understanding and ownership of their learning.

Used in more than 8,500 schools and districts in the U.S. and
internationally with more than 10 million students, MAP Growth is the
leading assessment for measuring what students know and are ready to
learn next. Schools can use MAP Growth assessment data to instantly
identify areas where a student’s academic performance is strong and
where support is required. MATHia, powered by research-proven artificial
intelligence and cognitive science research, then places students in a
personalized learning sequence focused on the content areas where the
student needs further instruction. With the MAP Growth and MATHia
integration, instruction is more focused and robust, providing each
student with the most impactful math education possible.

With the linkage of MAP Growth and MATHia:

  • Teachers are empowered to offer smarter differentiated instruction,
    without the additional work of analyzing MAP Growth data and adjusting
    curriculum for every student.
  • Students are presented with MATHia problems specifically designed to
    address their learning needs, identified by their MAP Growth
    assessment results identifying what needs more attention.
  • Teachers and administrators are able to monitor student academic
    growth in real time and ensure students master the content needed to
    get them back to, and even beyond, grade level.

“This partnership is a complete game-changer for educators in need of a
better math learning solution. With MAP Growth and MATHia, we’ve
seamlessly combined K-12’s best growth assessment data with the best
math learning content and platform,” said Barry Malkin, CEO of Carnegie
Learning. “Teachers will see an immediate and significant impact. As an
organization passionate about transforming math learning, we’re thrilled
to offer educators an easier way to leverage the intelligent MAP Growth
assessment as part of an adaptive, technology-driven action plan.”

A computer adaptive assessment, MAP Growth measures what students know
and informs what they’re ready to learn next by dynamically adjusting to
each student’s performance. It helps teachers pinpoint the specific
needs of each student, and informs instruction to support student growth
and learning. Real-time, accessible reports provide educators with
actionable and reliable data to track growth, and help every student
learn throughout the year.

“NWEA is committed to providing flexibility to educators by ensuring MAP
Growth can complement and be used with a wide range of learning
platforms and software to support student growth,” said Matt Chapman,
CEO of NWEA. “We’re proud to partner with Carnegie Learning to help
educators use MAP Growth data to efficiently and effectively enhance
math instruction and learning.”
