Dover, N.H., December 3, 2012 —District Administration magazine and its readers have chosen the Measured Progress DATAWISE™ assessment and data management platform as a 2012 Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product. DATAWISE helps educators connect assessments and data to improve student learning.

In addition, users now have the ability to monitor student progress with new Testlets and an Item Bank built to the Common Core State Standards.
Backed by strong technical support and assessment expertise, DATAWISE is the trusted assessment platform for districts nationwide. The platform provides flexible test creation and administration options and customizable, interactive reports that ease the assessment process for educators.
