Galileo K-12 Online

Instructional Improvement and Effectiveness System

ATI is the leading provider of instructional improvement and effectiveness technology assisting today's educators. ATI's flagship product, Galileo K-12 Online Instructional Improvement and Effectiveness System, is comprehensive, standards-based, and research supported. The system is aligned to Common Core and state standards using benchmark (interim) and formative assessments to help elevate student learning. Teachers, principals, and administrators can use real-time data to inform and improve instructional practices and make data-driven decisions for overall effectiveness on an ongoing basis.


The federal goverment, as part of its Race to the Top (RTTT) Initiative, now has an official definition of an instructional improvement system. See the table below for how the Galileo K-12 Online Instructional Improvement and Effectiveness System meets all of the federal requirements. Articulation to both RTTT and local needs can be accomplished by using Galileo K-12 Online as part of a continuous Instructional Improvement Cycle comprised of goal-setting, planning, implementation, management, and evaluation throughout the school year.
