Improve outcomes for every student with award-winning solutions from Mentoring Minds

TYLER, Texas – July 30, 2020 – The 2020-21 school year is going to look and feel very different. As we continue to cope with changes prompted by COVID-19, educators are working tirelessly to create safe, conducive back-to-school plans.

At Mentoring Minds, we strive to provide educators with approachable yet sophisticated solutions to meet the instructional, assessment and reporting needs of your district. We’re here to support you during this unique time, and are happy to offer our resources in both digital and print format.

Quality matters

We’re pleased to share that Itematica, our comprehensive K-12 assessment solution, earned several industry accolades this year, including:

Our goal is to equip educators with the resources necessary to empower students with the critical thinking skills they need to thrive. The ThinkUp! Standards Mastery System is built to meet the unique needs of schools and districts, streamlining curriculum management, reporting and analytics and assessment management in a single platform.

While we embrace change as a constant this school year, our team is committed to learning and adapting with you. That’s why we continue to refine features of the ThinkUp Standards Mastery System for flexible learning this school year. Our award-winning solution, Itematica, offers key capabilities to support educators in planning effective instruction and assessment.

Customizable Assessments

We equip educators with approachable yet sophisticated capabilities to build and deliver custom assessments. Teachers use Itematica to increase the power of instruction with data that enhances every step in the educational journey.

With Itematica, educators receive access to over 65,000 assessment items, multiple delivery options, a robust authoring tool and a KDS or Certica item bank. (Yes, Certica is now integrated with Itematica! Get the scoop here).

Educators can author their own questions and resources to use in conjunction with those from their purchased item bank. Custom assessments can be delivered in a variety of formats, including printable test booklets, assignable online or a hybrid of both.

Diagnostics and Reporting

Educators can use the standards mastery snapshot feature to inform intervention and enrichment for specific students or student groups.

Reports can be filtered to highlight specific needs or student groups, and exported print to PDF, Excel, or CSV files. With custom reports, educators can provide valuable insights to all stakeholders – administrators, teachers, students and parents.

With a clear understanding of student performance in hand, teachers will be ready to address learning gaps with the ThinkUp! Standards Mastery System.

Critical thinking moves us forward

Supporting educators as they lead instruction, shape learning environments and support student growth is part of the philosophy that’s baked into our products, but it also informs our approach to customer service. Our dedicated team is ready to help you achieve your goals this school year.
