Irvine, CA. (May 3, 2018) — Illuminate Education today announced that the Illuminate Education Intelligence Platform (EIP) products (DNA/ISI/ISE) and eduCLIMBER were named a 2018 SIIA CODiE Award finalists in the Best Data Solution category. Finalists represent applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

Illuminate’s suite of products helps educators quickly make data-informed decisions to improve student achievement. The powerful set of modules in the Illuminate platform enables functionality such as assessment building and administration, data visualization, MTSS support, reporting and analysis.

Using our platform, educators can bring together academic, behavioral, attendance, intervention and social-emotional data in one place. This data can be viewed, analyzed, summarized, and acted upon at a student, classroom, site or district level. Smart tools and functionality allow for monitoring of subgroups and gap analysis to ensure instructional and intervention decisions are promoting equitable outcomes for all students in your organization.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 91 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology. EIP and eduCLIMBER were honored as one of 152 finalists across the 39 education technology categories.

“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2018 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs,” said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA.

“We’re very proud to be recognized as SIIA CODiE finalists for best data solution,” says Max Carnecchia, CEO of Illuminate Education. “It is a testament to our continual efforts and commitment to delivering a delightful experience to our customers for student and educator success.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Celebration at the SIIA Annual Conference & CODiE Awards in San Francisco on June 13.
