Content Creation Partner with Learnosity
Westchester Education Services was Learnosity’s first Custom Content Creation partner. Learnosity and Westchester combine their complementary capabilities to develop engaging and innovative content that seamlessly integrates into client assessment systems. Learnosity allows for standards tagging of standards, as well as the application of other relevant metadata. The system also acts as a foundation for assessable interactivities.
A client was developing a new middle-school Algebra Readiness math program, incorporating scaffolded learning concepts within their assessment content. They needed a partner who could produce a large volume of high-quality content in a compressed time period, had experience creating content directly in their preferred assessment authoring system, and had the expertise to develop new, accurate assessment items with a depth of knowledge and adherence to Common Core State Standards.
