Performance Matters Honored As A 2012 Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product In District Administration Magazine

Performance Matters web-based assessment and data management system chosen from among a record number of nominations by District Administration readers

Winter Park, Fla. — Dec. x, 2012 —Performance Matters™, a web-based solution that provides an integrated platform for student assessment, data management and teacher effectiveness, has been named a 2012 District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product. With more than 1,000 nominations, a new record, the winners were selected by the editors of District Administration, and were based upon both the quantity of nominations and the quality of reader descriptions.

The annual District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products award recognizes leaders in the education industry, and provides superintendents and other senior school district leaders with the opportunity to learn what products their colleagues around the country are using, and how these products contribute to the success of their districts.

“The record number of nominations we received this year was astonishing,” said Odvard Egil Dyrli, District Administration’s executive editor. “There were so many excellent recommendations from school administrators who shared how the products made significant differences in their districts, and choosing the Top 100 proved to be challenging and difficult. We are delighted to announce the honorees for 2012 and trust that the list will be a valuable resource for our readers.”

Performance Matters’ integrated product line correlates and analyzes performance data from multiple sources, and turns that data into actionable information to improve instruction and student learning. It offers schools a unique capability to combine historical data such as state test scores with current data such as benchmark, district and classroom assessments. Using interactive dashboards and color-coded reports, educators can instantly disaggregate and analyze the data for any student or group. By combining past performance with current data, districts and schools can objectively determine what’s working and what’s not to maximize their resources and make informed decisions about the best way to improve student performance.

“District Administration is a leading source of information about smart management solutions for K-12 school and district administrators,” said Woody Dillaha, co-founder and CEO of Performance Matters. “With Performance Matters’ timely actionable data, districts can differentiate instruction and professional development, identify and share best practices, and invest their resources where they have been proven to have the greatest impact. We’re honored that the readers of this respected publication have identified Performance Matters as a solution that’s making a positive difference in their school districts.”

Performance Matters, along with the complete list of winners, is featured in the December issue of District Administration magazine.
