Curriculum Associates Partners with Clever to Add 5-Minute SIS Integration to i-Ready®

New SIS integration gets students online faster

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass. (March 18, 2013) – Curriculum Associates, makers of the award-winning i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction program, today announced a strategic multi-year partnership with Clever to provide SIS integration for all of its school customers. For the first time, i-Ready will directly connect to dozens of student information systems.

Built on the Common Core and now used in every state, i-Ready provides a cost-effective online solution that accurately assesses students and provides detailed, easy-to-use reports to help teachers provide instruction based on individual student needs.

“We’ve always known that sending frequently updated rosters is a huge pain for schools and districts, and after surveying the market, we couldn’t be happier to have chosen the Clever solution,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “Clever is a huge leap forward in making i-Ready easy for schools to adopt. Not only will schools save time and money, but Clever will also ensure that students with the highest mobility will have uninterrupted access to the best learning software.” 

“It was clear from the outset that Curriculum Associates cares deeply about providing the best experience possible for its schools and their students,” said Tyler Bosmeny, CEO of Clever. “We’re thrilled that Clever will be able to help so many schools have an even better, more integrated experience with i-Ready.”

With the new partnership between Clever and Curriculum Associates, any school or district will be able to integrate i-Ready directly with their student information system (SIS). This means that all activity in a school, including student enrollment and course changes, will automatically stay up-to-date inside i-Ready with no additional work required by administrators or teachers. Setting up the process of integration via Clever takes 5 minutes for nearly any student information system.

Clever was founded by a team of technologists and former educators to help schools more easily deploy new software in the classroom. Over 3,000 schools use Clever to keep their learning software in sync with their student information system (SIS). Curriculum Associates is the latest among 50 leading educational software companies to partner with Clever to offer schools a modern and seamless way to integrate software.
