School districts often describe themselves as data-rich and information-poor, because they have a lot of achievement data, but it is difficult to get a complete picture of a student, school, or district because everything is so scattered. Even when the data are put together, there is no context - a critical element needed in order to transform disparate data points into useful information for instruction and accountability. At Alpine Achievement, we integrate information from your student information system, state assessments, large-scale assessments, locally developed common assessments, and student plans in one place - and make it available quickly and meaningfully to administrators, staff, and classroom teachers, who can then use it in a timely way to evaluate past patterns and trends as well as planning for instruction.
Alpine Achievement Systems is an Internet-based achievement data management system designed to help you use data to improve the achievement of all students, and to reduce the data management burden associated with accountability. Fully hosted and web-based, Alpine is accessible through your web browser over a standard, secure Internet connection. Most computer workstations are already equipped with the software needed to take full advantage of all of Alpine's features right away!
Our reporting tools quickly transform large-scale and local student achievement data into useful information for instructional decision making. These are generally organized in the following categories:
The Alpine system supports a comprehensive list of state-required assessments for a growing number of U.S. states. These include state-required standards assessments, graduation, end-of-course, and state mandated college readiness exams, ELL Assessments, Alternate Assessments, and Growth Model data. These measures are typically included for ESEA/NCLB reporting and are increasingly being aligned to the Common Core State Standards and alignment documents produced by SMARTER and PARCC. Visit Products and Services for more information.
The Alpine system acts as a data warehouse for many large-scale and widely used assessments. Most of our clients choose a mixture of their standardized large-scale measures (e.g., DIBELS, Scantron, AIMSweb, NWEA MAP, Acuity, STAR, EXPLORE/PLAN/ACT, CogAT) and combine it with locally-developed standardized assessments such as end-of-course and placement measures. There are over 170 common assessments set up and ready to go plus over 400 measures that are custom designed for individual client districts. More information about Data Warehouse features can be found in Products and Services.
Student Plans provide teachers with an opportunity to identify student strengths and needs, reference in achievement data as needed, identify goals and strategies for future instruction, monitor student progress, and log communications with the instructional team and with families. The Alpine system includes over 20 plan designs (each of which is customizable) plus dozens more that were set up for individual client districts. Some of the most popular plans are for RTI, English Language Learners, Gifted students, Student Learning Plans, Accommodations documentation, Behavior Plans, Literacy, and College/Career Readiness. Please visit Products and Services for more information about the features of Student Plans.
What our customers are saying:
" Alpine Achievement is an essential tool for us. The immediate access to data for a variety of purposes creates more time for teachers and principals to actually use the data rather than spend all of their time collecting it. I am constantly amazed and deeply appreciative of the continued innovations Alpine creates for its users. It's like they know what we need before we do!"
