...for two weeks of comprehensive professional development on topics important to educators, like remote learning, social-emotional and behavior (SEB), MTSS, equity, and formative assessment focused on student and educator success.
We'll also dive deeply into best practices for using Illuminate products, including opportunities to learn from fellow educators in client-led sessions. Teaching and learning look different this year, and we want to ensure you're getting the most out of your Illuminate solutions in our current environment.

What's the Good Word?
"I've started piloting online testing in an increasing number of classrooms, and when demoing with teachers how easy it is and the data generated, it has actually made teachers cry happy tears and caused spontaneous hugs!"
Coordinator of Instructional Technology,
Washington Unified School District
"DnA allows you to get a lot more nuanced with the way you are looking at, and taking action on, student data. We leverage the student group feature...This is helpful for teachers to know where to go next after Tier 1 instruction is nailed down."
Instructional Support Partner,
Denver Public Schools
"With Illuminate's data and assessment system (DnA) at our fingertips, instructors were able to shift their focus away from simply teaching the material to understanding whether or not students had actually learned it."
Math Instructional Team,
Statesboro High School
"The use of DnA has completely transformed the way that we look at and use data. It has become part of who we are. eduCLIMBER brings so much together for every child. We can really focus on the individual needs of the student. I was almost speechless."
Dr. Allison Jordan
Director of Testing, Research & Evaluation,
Newton County School System
"With the right data, we can get a complete picture of every student's strengths and weaknesses, and understand all the variables that contribute to performance. With this information, we can make better decisions about supports that are needed and how interventions are progressing."
Oxford Community Schools
"Using Illuminate allows me to concentrate on what I love to do most: TEACH!"
Switzerland of Ohio
"The data we get from Illuminate's DnA lets us get to the gaps early-knowing the data is knowing what's going on."
Director of Instructional Technology,
Pickerington Local School District
"eduCLIMBER is intuitive, easy to learn, and easy to use. What used to take weeks of work can be done in a couple of hours."
Data and Tech Specialist,
"Illuminate really is changing the face of education through technology."
Mountain View School District
"Illuminate is a vital step in our instructional process. Our team uses the data within Illuminate to drive instruction in the classroom, better prepare our students for the Milestones assessments, and make sure that we do not let any kids fall through the cracks."
Heard County Schools
"This system has meant a lot for our school, especially our students. It's very motivating for children to see their progress, like when a kid comes in and asks specifically to do something because they saw a piece of data. Because of eduCLIMBER, our gaps are closing and we're seeing so many positives."
