DALLAS – July 22, 2021 – Just in time for back to school, Istation, a leader in educational technology, is launching a series of cutting-edge product features designed to drive classroom innovation and efficiency, and help schools and districts achieve powerful student growth.
Istation in the browser and ISIP™ Configuration make returning to the classroom easier than ever before for students and teachers. These enhancements, part of Istation’s line of assessments and instruction for reading, math and Spanish literacy, will be available starting with the 2021-2022 school year.
Istation’s new web-based student application, Istation in the browser, is available to students and educators using Chrome on Chromebooks. This update simplifies and streamlines the user experience, allowing users to access all of Istation’s programs by simply clicking a link rather than downloading and installing an application.
The new ISIP™ Configuration feature gives assessment administrators more control and flexibility over the timing of ISIP assessments, empowering schools with the data they need at the moment they need it. ISIP Configuration enables administrators to turn on and off automated assessments and assign assessments on demand. Additionally, with new separate controls over the ISIP experience for on-campus and at-home students, educators can control both when and where on-demand assessments are taken.
“Innovating and adapting to the needs of educators as we return to the classroom is a critical focus for Istation,” said Istation President and Chief Operating Officer Ossa Fisher. “Our new product features provide updated functionality to provide greater support to the people we serve.”
