LearningStation™, leading provider of robust, student assessment platforms today announced its partnership with itslearning, the digital learning platform of choice for teachers. The two companies have joined forces to offer a comprehensive solution that combines the personalized digital learning platform from itslearning with LearningStation’s assessment platform, Insight.

The multi-faceted partnership between Charlotte-based LearningStation and Boston-based itslearning is a joint reseller and integrated product development partnership. This new venture has been formed to address the need in the market for a comprehensive, district-level assessment solution that provides educators with the ability to conduct secure online & plain paper testing, track student achievement, improve teacher accountability and more.

itslearning is a robust platform that offers districts a variety of tools that support professional development, community involvement, curriculum management, course management, reporting and analytics. With a growing list of responsibilities, teachers face a number of challenges that make their everyday teaching experience more difficult. The driving force behind this partnership was to provide educators and administrators alike with a single platform to save time, increase productivity, promote professional growth and collaboration, close student achievement gaps while engaging each learner.

LearningStation CEO Jim Kirchner said, “We are excited to partner with the great team at itslearning. It is the goal of both our companies to provide our users with the best possible solution, because most LMS systems do not have the ability to administer tests, or track student achievement, it made a lot of sense to offer our customers this joint solution.” He continued, “We have already started to receive extremely positive feedback from our users with regard to our comprehensive, combined platform.”

“Today more than ever, it is all about providing users with high-quality solutions that make their lives easier, while saving them time and precious resources,” said Kevin Pawsey, CEO of itslearning USA. “We are thrilled to announce this partnership which provides our customers with a ‘one-stop-shop’ for assessment by using the Insight Assessment Platform within itslearning. It’s a win-win for everyone,” he added.

The two solutions offered by LearningStation and itslearning compliment each other at every turn as the integration of these two platforms now give our customers the option to choose from an online or plain paper testing and assessment method.
