Product Information:

INFORM is an award-winning web-based suite of applications that function as an academic transactional data warehouse and provides users with the ability to easily view academic achievement aligned to Washington State Standards from numerous types of achievement data (i.e., Multiple Measures Reporting). Additionally, INFORM enables users to quickly access instructional materials and resources aligned to standards to address differentiated instruction, preparation of lesson plans, and scope and sequence calendaring of curriculum. INFORM is the educator’s answer for easily interpreting data and taking INFORMed action. INFORM works with Skyward and uses Skyward’s Teacher/Class/Student data to populate and map performance data with students, teachers, and classes.

In addition to reporting, analytical tools, and instructional/curriculum management applications, INFORM also contains professional development tracking tools contained in the INSTRUCT application. INSTRUCT enables districts to publish online course catalogs of professional development offerings, facilitate online course registration, attendance, grading, and maintaining complete professional development portfolios for every educator and staff member in the district. Users can easily access their portfolio to view professional development transcripts, maintain their licensure and credentialing requirements, and use the data for state/federal reporting.

With INSPIRE users have immediate access to tools that enable for the preparation of web-based Individual Education Plans. INSPIRE enables multiple users to be working concurrently online as part of the special education team to complete an IEP for a student or group of students. The INSPIRE application also provides users with the ability to create individual learning plans and/or academic improvement plans.

IDMS Test Builder provides INFORM users with the ability to easily create, administer, score and/or scan district benchmark or classroom assessments. Assessments may be administered online and immediately scored, or administered in a traditional paper/pencil format and then scanned. All results may be made available through INFORMs Multiple Measures Reporting. IDMS Test Builder is aligned with the Washington State Standards so users can feel confident that the items they are selecting are relevant and rigorous. Additional test item banks may be purchased directly from EDmin as EDmin is an authorized reseller of Education Testing Services (ETS) item banks.

Within the INFORM suite, users may also have access to resources aligned to Washington State Standards through the Curriculum Matrix resource browser. The resource alignment has been done by Education Correlation Services, a division of EDmin. Users also have access to Total Reader, a Lexile-based reading assessment program. Finally, users may also access IN$ITE, a financial accounting reporting and analysis tool that provides school districts with the ability to see what works for every child over time at what cost.
