Districts and charters of all sizes and all across the country, partner with ATI as they actively work to achieve a variety of goals designed to improve student learning. Each has implemented Galileo by making procedural changes that directly led to student growth. Read their stories and find out what they are saying.
"ATI is the only large assessment system that allows users to create custom standards-based assessments that still provide scale scores, normed-growth analysis, and predictions for the state test. No other vendor allows for such customizability while providing detailed statistical analyses... Finally, the ability to review tests, choose high quality technology enhanced items, and to even replace items on secure tests to better meet our needs is without compare in this industry."
— Eric C. Mason, Director of Assessment, CO
"The immediacy of the feedback and the depth and breadth of the Galileo analytics through its drill-down capability are immense time savers for teachers. They provide reports and results that would take teachers hours to perform if they could perform such analyses at all."

"ATI has supported us with high quality assessments, state-of-the art metrics and scoring, and excellent customer service."
— Jared Prolo, Coordinator of Assessment, Research, and Evaluation Services, CA
"ATI not only helped my leadership team but also our teachers to have a more data-driven focus."
— Dr. Stephanie De Mar, Principal, Loma Linda, AZ
"We have had some great conversations about the rigor of questions aligned to a certain standard using Galileo as a measuring stick. Teachers have used technology–enhanced items and feel that that experience coupled with the act of taking online assessments for two years has better prepared our students for the first state testing done online this year."
— Kelly Klocke, Bayless School District Instructional Coordinator, MO
"My advice to any school looking to improve academically would be to use the data derived from Galileo pretests, benchmark, and posttests," said principal Heather Ray.
Cohasset pass rates for 10th graders exceeded the state average by, an average, 14 and 19 percent in math and ELA respectively, per Louise Demas, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development.
"I can't emphasize enough how far this school's come… it was a school with low performance…in the time they've implemented Galileo... data increases have been huge." - Tori Teague, Executive Director Assessment/Curriculum
