Illuminate Education Acquires eduCLIMBER, Improves Data Analysis for Teachers and Districts
Irvine, CA. (December 14, 2017) — Illuminate Education, the company transforming K-12 instruction through educational intelligence solutions, has joined forces with eduCLIMBER, a unique cloud-based data system that increases efficiency and accuracy of data analysis to improve student outcomes. eduCLIMBER is based in Evansville, Wis. and currently serves hundreds of school districts.
The dynamic combination will add eduCLIMBER’s data capabilities, which focus on the visualization of both academic and behavioral data, to Illuminate Education’s established Education Intelligence Platform. The companies’ aligned missions and complementary technologies will allow them to provide increasingly more useful and user-friendly data to K-12 districts through a strengthened set of product offerings.
“Illuminate Education and eduCLIMBER’s shared focus on utilizing data to improve student outcomes makes this combination powerful,” said Max Carnecchia, CEO of Illuminate Education. “eduCLIMBER’s abilities are unparalleled in providing teachers and administrators with digestible and visual student data. These tools produce automated data walls, saving teachers’ valuable planning time. Specialists can easily monitor student progress and administrators can quickly triangulate and compare student data across a school or district.”
The Illuminate team of educators has been committed to creating tools that promote student and educator success since 2009. Since Illuminate Education’s founding, K-12 districts have increasingly looked to organize key data functions such as student information systems, data warehouses, assessment management and individual education plans in special education. To address these needs, Illuminate Education developed its Education Intelligence Platform to consolidate these functionalities into one simple, effective system.
Founded in 2013, eduCLIMBER has been on a similar path to improve education through data visualization, particularly to enhance Response to Intervention (RTI) and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
“This is a true partnership of two companies who are passionate about helping educators with their data,” said Matt Harris, co-founder of eduCLIMBER. “Together, we will give educators what they’ve been dreaming of — a single system to aggregate and visualize their student data, which then enables them to identify strategies for improving student outcomes.”
