Partnership assesses students’ abilities and interests to guide personalized learning and enrichment activities
ITASCA, Ill (PRWEB) March 16, 2022
Riverside Insights®, a leading developer of research-based assessments and analytics, today announced a new partnership with Renzulli Learning, an interactive online system for whole-school enrichment that provides students with personalized learning resources based on their unique learning interests and preferences. Through this new partnership, educators can now easily combine Riverside Insight’s Cognitive Abilities Test™ (CogAT®) ability information with Renzulli Learning‘s dynamic library of resources to better differentiate instruction and engage all learners in the classroom.
Riverside’s CogAT enables educators to understand students’ learning potential, while Renzulli Learning enables them to tap into students’ interests and preferences to unlock that potential. Educators can attest that aligning instruction with students’ interests encourages high levels of engagement from all learners. Together, CogAT and Renzulli Learning offer a powerful combination to make learning accessible and fun for every student.
“Riverside Insights’ partnership with Renzulli Learning is a first step in our commitment to supporting the whole child and their ‘unlimited learning’ to reach their full potential,” said Riverside Insights CEO Rajib Roy. “We know that students learn best when they are engaged in the content. CogAT’s unique ability profile for each student, combined with Renzulli’s interactive resources, will allow educators to meet each student’s needs through interest-based instruction.
With the addition of Renzulli Learning, Riverside Insights extends its commitment to supporting all learners by using insights to drive equity in the classroom. Riverside’s industry-leading ability measure, CogAT, together with its specialized assessments for math and reading performance (IowaFlex, Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test™ (IAAT™) and Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test® (GMRT®)) and its rapid tools to support progress monitoring and intervention (easyCBM® and ESGI), create a comprehensive assessment portfolio that helps educators understand how students learn best. Renzulli Learning now offers perspective on what students want to learn. This powerful combination of information helps educators personalize instruction to unlock each learner’s unique potential.
Based on years of research by Dr. Joe Renzulli and Dr. Sally Reiss, Renzulli Learning’s digital platform enables educators to engage each learner with engaging activities to foster growth, enhance critical thinking, and develop creative skills in problems solving. The Renzulli Profiler, a detailed online questionnaire, allows the Renzulli system to generate a personal profile of each student’s main interests, learning styles and forms of expression, allowing teachers to get to know their students better and effectively differentiate teaching. Students can engage in personalized activities and resources aligned with their profiler results, creating a dynamic learning environment tailored to their individual needs and interests. The platform also provides a secure forum for project-based collaborative learning and helps students build a comprehensive talent portfolio. Students can access Renzulli Learning in more than a dozen languages, so students from all backgrounds can benefit from Renzulli resources.
“We are thrilled to enter into this strategic partnership with Riverside Insights, which will benefit students and schools across America,” said Michael DiMauro, CEO of Renzulli Learning. “The synergy between our products will help educators understand each student’s abilities first and focus on student engagement through Renzulli Learning’s strengths-based approach to learning, which is essential as schools are grappling with the persistent learning challenges posed by the pandemic.”
