Based in the Murrieta-Temecula Valley of Southern California and founded in 1996, Adrylan Communications, Inc. provides K-12 assessment and reporting solutions that fully support California’s transition to the Common Core State Standards. Adrylan is the designer of the Educator’s Assessment Data Management System (EADMS). A web-based application, EADMS is designed to work with any type of student enrollment, demographic, and testing data and is a support lifeline for districts, schools, and classrooms, providing the data insight necessary to help break out of instructional deadlock.
Founded in 2003, Performance Matters is an organization made up of passionate people who are dedicated to providing best-in-class products and services for K-12 education. School districts across the country use the Performance Matters Assessment and Data Management System (ADMS) and FASTe platforms, which link their student and educator data. These data are used to drive the decisions made by teachers, administrators, board members, and parents to improve student learning and educator performance.
Using the ADMS from Performance Matters, districts can administer Measured Progress Benchmarks and Testlets, as well as create their own Common Core tests from items in the Measured Progress Item Bank.
