Delaware Department of Education Chooses SunGard K-12 Education’s PerformancePLUS
The Delaware Department of Education and SunGard K-12 Education recently launched a project to provide SunGard’s PerformancePLUS web-based assessment and curriculum management solution to Delaware’s K-12 school districts and charter schools.
Through its partnership with SunGard K-12 Education, Delaware will implement the full suite of PerformancePLUS products and roll it out to 40 districts and charter schools throughout the state over the next three years. The software solutions will allow educators to analyze student assessments and help them make data-driven decisions to enhance instruction and support student achievement. The PerformancePLUS suite also will offer an efficient tool for creating and administering local benchmark assessments.
According to Frank Lavelle, president and CEO of SunGard K-12 Education, this project continues the company’s more than decade-long relationship with the state. “Since 1999, we have worked with Delaware’s Department of Education to provide cost-effective, easy-to-use software solutions to support teachers, administrators, counselors, parents, and students in the important work of educating our children,” he says. “As a result of this project, educators will be able to rely on the latest curriculum-planning technology as they help each and every student learn in a way that best suits their individual needs.”
In addition to PerformancePLUS, the Delaware Department of Education also is providing eSchoolPLUS, SunGard K-12 Education’s student information management solution, and IEPPLUS, its special education management system, to districts and charter schools throughout the state.
After implementation, PerformancePLUS will be accessible to educators anywhere, anytime via a secure Internet web site. The products will be hosted on SunGard’s servers, which are maintained by a dedicated team of SunGard professionals and backed up by SunGard Availability Services.
PerformancePLUS is a web-based, software solution that assists educators in tracking and analyzing student performance, building and administering benchmark assessments, and mapping and managing curriculum. The system helps provide educators with the data they need to determine the path each student’s education should follow based on his or her individual needs.
The full suite of PerformancePLUS products includes PerformanceTRACKER, AssessmentBUILDER, and CurriculumCONNECTOR. The Individualized Learning Plan Module and Online Assessment Module are also available.
PerformanceTRACKER allows teachers and administrators to track and analyze longitudinal assessment results by student, standard, building, and district through graphical dashboards and reports correlated to state standards.
CurriculumCONNECTOR is a complete curriculum management system and guides teachers and administrators to adjust their curriculum based upon an analysis of their assessment results within PerformanceTRACKER.
Partnered with PerformanceTRACKER, AssessmentBUILDER provides K-12 educators a simple way to create, score, and analyze local assessments. With the Online Assessment Module, educators can manage the entire process via computer.
The Individualized Learning Plan Module allows educators to build a learning plan that is specific to each student’s strengths and weaknesses and his/her long-term goals.
