Illuminate Education and Education Advanced Announce Partnership to Integrate Products
Companies will integrate SchoolCity and TestHound assessment tools to improve teaching and learning

IRVINE, Calif. and TYLER, Texas (March 16, 2021) – In an effort to provide greater visibility and support to K-12 school districts, Illuminate Education announces the integration of its SchoolCity assessment platform with TestHound, a test enablement tool from Education Advanced. Through this partnership, school districts will be able to more effectively coordinate assessments and manage student accommodation data.

“Our goal is always to help educators bring teachable moments to light. This includes making the assessment process easier for all our students. By partnering with Education Advanced, we hope to save educators a significant amount of time when planning assessments and coordinating student accommodations,” said Christine Willig, CEO at Illuminate Education. “Users will have additional options for customizing assessments, and the ability to dive deeper into students’ progress and accommodation needs.”

Data from TestHound will automatically map and transfer on a nightly basis to SchoolCity. Online assessments created in SchoolCity will include personalized student accommodations  with the ability to practice for state and local exams through SchoolCity assessments.

“Whether educators are assessing students’ progress during remote learning, making the shift to computer-based exams or in need of a way to simplify accommodations, TestHound can help,” said Dr. Eli Crow, CEO at Education Advanced. “Integrating these features with Illuminate’s SchoolCity platform will not only streamline the assessment process for teachers, but will help to ensure every student is receiving the support they need to be successful.”
