As the summer is winding down, it's time to
start getting ready for the new school year. We have compiled a short checklist
to help you prepare for optimal Galileo implementation. We encourage you to focus
on these simple steps now for seamless implementation this fall.

We at ATI are passionate
about education. We live, think, and breathe it. So when we create technology
to promote learning, we continuously engineer a system for teachers and other
educators that is both easy to use and powered by research. It is the research
behind Galileo that leads to the valid and reliable data needed to facilitate
Some may simply ask, what
is the difference in the data?
There's a big difference,
an important difference we want to share.
We have built Item
Response Theory (IRT) analyses right into Galileo. As a result, we can provide rapid
analyses for thousands of unique assessments including customized assessments,
each year. The benefits to clients include customized assessments that, just

growth, forecast state test performance, and provide categorical growth
analyses of student ability based on district and specific student populations.
No other system can do this.
So, by using IRT embedded
directly into Galileo, we are able to provide the ground-breaking comprehensive
assessment system needed to support data- driven, decision making. And we do
this together in partnership with all our client districts and charters.
Simply put, Galileo users
are making a measurable difference because they have implemented a system that
