Istation spent years researching and developing the model for a comprehensive computer-adaptive learning program that would save teachers time and help students learn. The biggest challenge was building software smart enough to recognize the difference between when a child is actually struggling with a concept and when a kid’s just goofing off. After 17 years in business, Istation has it down to a science. Every click a child makes, whether right or wrong, is recorded. The data is analyzed, deficiencies are pinpointed, appropriate lessons are automatically delivered, and teachers are given a wealth of information about every student through consumable, actionable reports.

Teachers, administrators, and parents access Istation’s customizable reports 24 hours a day. While a superintendent can see the performance of an entire district compared to a nationally normed data set, a principal can look at an overall campus, and a teacher can view the performance of a whole class or a single student. Teachers can even see how many seconds or minutes it took a child to answer a particular question. Istation helps them determine the specific skill, word, letter, or concept that is giving a child repeated difficulties. Istation’s reports group students with like deficiencies and provide teachers with a link to printable lessons, lesson plans, and manipulatives that can be used for intervention.

Istation’s reports illustrate past and present skill growth and are available immediately after students complete an assessment, which is automatically delivered the first time a student logs in every month.

Parents and guardians can log in to view their child’s progress and access supplemental home instruction.

Istation tracks each child’s identity and performance within the program but records no other personal information. Istation has signed the Student Privacy Pledge. Our strict policies and procedures ensure we keep data private and secure.
