Sandy, Utah — Feb. 7, 2017 — Since Truenorthlogic and Performance Matters merged last year, the combined company has been leading the charge to connect student and educator growth to support a cycle of continuous improvement. The new company has clearly struck a chord with K-12 educators.
In 2016, Performance Matters’ client roster grew by more than 33 percent as school districts across the United States have embraced its forward-thinking, data-driven approach to student and professional learning. Today, more than 400 educators from schools and school districts are coming together in Buena Vista, Fla. to discover and share best practices for harnessing the power of data at the Performance Matters National Learners Conference.
At the National Learners Conference, which takes place Feb. 7th to 9th, teachers, school leaders and district administrators will see how their colleagues from across the country are using data and real-time analytics to power student and educator growth. Participants will hear presentations from industry leaders, including Talithia Williams, a big data expert and professor of math and statistics at Harvey Mudd College; Victoria Bernhardt, executive director of the Education for the Future Initiative; and Dylan Wiliam, emeritus professor of educational assessment at University College London. In addition, participants can choose from more than 40 focus sessions presented by K-12 educators, industry leaders, and experts from Performance Matters and its partners.
“We knew we were solving a major problem for K-12 education when we combined student and educator growth solutions with real-time analytics,” said CEO Adam J. Klaber. “The response to this vision and our new solutions has been phenomenal. The rate of growth we’ve experienced and the number of schools and districts attending our conference is another proof point that educators are excited to use real-time data and analytics to improve student performance and for their own professional learning and growth.”
