In support of educators implementing technology-based assessment and instruction, ATI has launched a new initiative introducing Technology Enhanced (TE) items through formative assessments rendered in the course of dialogic instruction.

Galileo Instructional Data System Pilot Project Evaluation

MAGI Services — A Measurement Incorporated Company

Funded by recipients of a federal grant administered by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, February 2009

“…the Massachusetts Department of Education (MADOE) contracted with Assessment Technology, Inc. to supply and implement an instructional data system named Galileo Online. …The evaluation of the Galileo Instructional System Pilot Project (known hereafter as Galileo) was conducted by an independent research and evaluation company, MAGI Services, a Measurement Incorporated Company. …All told, the findings in this study demonstrate strong evidence that the project was a success. The benchmark assessments provided teachers with a tool to inform and shape their instruction, with the goal of increasing student mastery of standards. The benchmarks were reasonably aligned with the statewide assessments and could be used to inform districts and schools educators on how students would perform on the statewide assessments.” Learn more adobe p d f
