Thinkgate has been a willing and collaborative business partner with Gwinnett County Public Schools for over seven years even though the company has had to make numerous special accommodations in order to meet the school system’s stringent requirements.
The Elements™ tool has provided easy access to student data enabling teachers, administrators and central office personnel to use the information for both planning and instructional purposes.
The Thinkgate support and development staff works collaboratively each year with GCPS technical/support personnel to load the GCPS standards known as Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) into the Elements™ system. This allows GCPS district staff and teachers to utilize the AKS standards to build district and local school common assessments to assesses the district’s rigorous curriculum.
The Teacher and Administrator Portals have provided ease of access in utilizing and analyzing student data. School personnel are happy with the reporting functionality of the Elements™ tool since it allows users to analyze data easily and quickly to the item and standard levels.
