RANDA Solutions Provides TOWER System for Herff Jones “OWN IT!” Evaluation Clients

As major education corporation focuses on exploring a sale that could fetch up to $1 billion, Herff Jones secures existing “OWN IT!” clients a secure future with RANDA’s TOWER teacher observation solutions.

RANDA Solutions CEO Marty Reed has announced a partnership to support Herff Jones’ “OWN IT!” clients and their existing contracts. As Herff Jones leadership wanted to ensure there is no disruption of service to the many users of their “OWN IT!” teacher observation solution, they turned to teacher observation experts RANDA Solutions, provider of TOWER and TOWER Mobile. “I’m pleased and excited at this collaboration,” says Reed. “RANDA and Herff Jones are working together to make this an easy and seamless transition.”

RANDA Solutions, a major provider of resources to support teacher effectiveness strategies, has been a pioneer in the field of applications that acquire, manage and report on teacher observation data. As Herff Jones searched the landscape of K-12 solution providers, RANDA seemed a natural fit to help them in transition. “OWN IT!” clients are predominantly in Indiana school systems where Herff Jones, a Varsity Achievement Brand, is based.

In transition, RANDA has been providing new support systems and training initiatives to provide a smooth path for existing users. “OWN IT!” users continue to use the existing platform, now owned and supported by RANDA, for a year. At the conclusion of the year, historical user client data is migrated into the larger TOWER system without additional cost and clients continue their activities on TOWER and TOWER Mobile.

“Our transition plan gives clients opportunity to get to know our team and for us to get to know our new clients,” says Reed. “Based on existing client satisfaction reports, we have high confidence these users will want to continue the relationship on the TOWER platform, which has many more features, including aggregation and alignment to other data sets for additional benefits.” RANDA’s unique position in education intelligence systems is their tool set for administrators and educators collect, aggregate, manage and report on various types of education intelligence – both RANDA and third-party data. This includes standardized assessment results, formative assessments, teacher evaluation results, and education demographic data.

Historical and live data reporting, along with additional customized content, is delivered through our secure web portals. RANDA makes software tools that allow educators and administrators at the school, district, and state levels to make informed decisions based on timely, accurate data.

New USDOE Report Reveals Many States Struggle to Link Individual Student Test Data to the Proper Teacher

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) February 06, 2014

In a recent report released by the United States Department of Education titled, “State Implementation of Reforms Promoted Under the Recovery Act,” the agency revealed that many states struggle to link summative assessment data from individual students to the teacher who actually taught that student. Accuracy of this data relationship is critical considering new policies tying student assessment results to teacher effectiveness scores and, in some cases, teacher pay. This was reported to be the biggest challenge of the five specific challenges the study asked of the 50 State Education Agencies (SEAs) and the District of Columbia.

The report states, “The major challenge reported by the largest number of SEAs was that current data systems make linking student test data to individual teachers difficult (40 percent of SEAs implementing the reform).” The report then goes on to say that, “linking teacher and student data is necessary to evaluate educator effectiveness and support performance-based compensation systems, as outlined in the Recovery Act.”

RANDA Solutions has been working on Teacher/Student Data Link (TSDL) for ten years and currently has a statewide system in place that is 99.4% accurate, compared to an 84% level of accuracy when RANDA first accessed the system. This industry-leading accuracy is a key factor in RANDA being able to deliver validated statewide assessment scores in 24 hours, allowing for spring scores to be used for decisions, such as graduation eligibility, before the school year is complete.

“We came at this problem with a unique approach,” says RANDA CEO Marty Reed. “We’ve empowered the teachers to have ownership of their student data, because nobody knows who taught a student more than that student’s teacher.”

The RANDA system also allows for partial student claiming in instances of team teaching. The student record remains flagged until the teachers combine for 100% of the student’s time. This statewide assessment data management system serves 91,000 users, handles over a million student records, and the typical user completes his or her process in 15 minutes.

Educational Technology has sparked a very specific revolution in the treatment of students with dyslexia

(PRWEB) November 12, 2013

Dr. Rod Berger, host of Core of Education and editor for EdTechReview.in will interview Michael Hart, Ph.D. in the first of a five-part series about how technology has dramatically altered the ways students with dyslexia are treated. Dr. Berger and Dr. Hart will dive into what criteria should guide us when choosing educational technology for students of all ages with these language-based learning problems (i.e., dyslexia).

Dr. Michael Hart, the Principal and Owner ofDoctorMichaelHart.com, has special expertise in dyslexia and attention deficit disorders. After 25 years of practice, he now provides online services including consultations, courses and webinars. He blogs regularly and writes for several publications.

In this interview, Dr. Hart cuts to the core of issues facing the one in five students who suffer from some degree of difficulty with developing adequate skills in reading, writing and spelling. He covers the research that clearly shows the difficulty with acquiring reading, writing, and spelling skills is tied to underlying weaknesses in language processing. Finally he chats about how to use that knowledge as a base to make educational technology choices which can be mapped to what we know about cognitive functioning–or how the brain is “wired.”

“Educational Technology has sparked a very specific revolution in the treatment of students with dyslexia.” says Dr. Michael Hart. “Frankly, it goes beyond using technology as a core component to education reform.”

Both men speak to how teachers now have direct access to 40 years of proper remediation research, specific to language-based learning issues (dyslexia). Finally, they discuss the ways technology provides powerful tools for students to leverage their cognitive strengths and bypass their weaknesses in school.

South Sudanese Chief of Education & Protection for the UNHCR, Isacco Consonni, Dives into a New Interview Series with Core of Education

I am both humbled and grateful to hear about Consonni’s work on the development of an education system at this most fragile and vital stage.

(PRWEB) November 11, 2013

Core of Education puts the focus onto South Sudanese education with Isacco Consonni, Chief of Education & Protection in South Sudan for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Consonni chats with Dr. Rod Berger in the first of a developing interview series about how he arrived in his current position and the ways he’s approaching the development of a brand new education system in the world’s youngest country.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) leads and coordinates international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. UNHCR strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. Over more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 7,685 people in more than 125 countries continues to help some 33.9 million persons.

South Sudan gained its independence in July 2011, but confronts major political and socio-economic challenges. Efforts to transform the country into a functional State have been beset by inter-communal violence, rebellions by militia groups and localized conflicts over land and natural resources. The mass arrival of returnees from Sudan and elsewhere in Africa has added to the pressure. Consonni works to establish and strengthen a cohesive education system in this turbulent environment.

Dr. Berger spoke to the interview stating, “It’s easy to focus on first-world education problems from here in America and not recognize the difficulties some countries are facing.” He continued, “I am both humbled and grateful to hear about Consonni’s work on the development of an education system at this most fragile and vital stage.”

High points of the interview included Consonni’s on the ground assessment of the current atmosphere in South Sudan along with his insights into the opportunities and challenges facing the country, and an explanation of his dedication to bettering the world through education. Consonni also paints a picture of South Sudanese culture and walks through the foods and mindset of this blossoming nation.

During the National Summit on Education Reform Dr. Berger sat down with thought leaders including Digital Learning Now!’s Executive Director John Bailey, and Foundation for Excellence in Education’s CEO Patricia Levesque, to discuss reform, technology, the power of parents, and more. The conference brought together leading voices in education including former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Former Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, along with others.

Theodore B. Olson was Solicitor General of the United States from 2001-2004 and was Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Office of Legal Counsel in the U.S. Department of Justice from 1981 to 1984.

“Vergara v. California has the potential to fundamentally alter the institution of education,” said Dr. Berger. He continued, “Olson’s passion for education reform seems matched only by the scope of his vision.”
