)-- This week marks the public launch of a new alliance between Sunburst Digital and a new division of the Lorenz Corporation, Show What You Know (SWYK) Publishing. Sunburst will act as the national sales and marketing partner for SWYK Online®, a brand new web-based diagnostic assessment and prescriptive remediation system for the Common Core State Standards.
SWYK Online® covers 100% of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Math, providing educators with the simplest means to measure and improve what students know. Teachers can select assessments by one or more standards to quickly gauge initial comprehension of the topic. The results are automatically scored and with literally one click the teacher can assign suggested remediation lessons tailored to address each student’s identified gap. Each lesson contains simple direct instruction slides, printable activities, video content officially licensed from the Khan Academy, adaptive quizzes, and educational games.
“We are thrilled to be part of this landmark product launch,” remarks Josh Bohls, Sunburst Digital Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The SWYK Online® solution will be a welcome breath of fresh air for educators and students alike, and will surely be considered a fresh alternative to the wide array of stale remediation systems available today.”
SWYK Online® is the first educational system to officially license the immensely popular Khan Academy video library, which has been access over 114 million times since launch.
