March 15, 2021 – Laguna Beach, CA – Horizon Education announces new collaboration with Otus, a leading provider of K-12 education technology solutions, to provide effective SAT/ACT norm referenced benchmark assessments, data that informs instruction, and the ability for educators to build strong systems of support within their districts around college readiness and state accountability. This comes at a time when educators are focused on meeting the needs of all students, on their path to college and career readiness.
“Otus is a fast growing organization in the data and assessment space, and this partnership allows Horizon to provide actionable insights to every stakeholder in the education system. High schools have been challenged when it comes to obtaining meaningful analytics to help make improved instructional decisions, and now students, teachers, and instructional leaders will have the information they need to build curricular support models that drive student success.” Dustin Bainbridge, CEO of Horizon Education.
Otus helps schools and districts efficiently manage instruction, learning, grading, attendance, assessment, and analytics. And now, with this new alliance with Horizon Education, the College Assessment Package can be added to that list.
“The landscape of the SAT/ACT has grown to over 30 states using these college readiness assessments as end of course exams for high school students. Otus is committed to delivering a secondary benchmark solution to teachers and students across the nation that supports student success in their journey to both college and career” said Jennifer Gurss, Chief Sales Officer for Otus. Based on the insights obtained through both the Horizon College Assessment Package and performance on assessments delivered through our solution, teachers will be able to adjust and deliver instruction to meet each of the high school student’s learning needs.
