McKinney ISD and ALL In Learning are proud to announce a multi-year agreement between the two organizations.  Dr. Logan Faris, while at Dowell Middle School in 2011, adopted ALL In Learning to boost their mastery learning process, PLC, and intervention efforts.  More schools have come online in the last two years and the combined total of student assessments graded have exceeded 150,000 through the 2012-2103 school year.

Starting in the Fall of 2013, ALL In Learning’s Cloud solution for daily formative assessments will be available for all of McKinney’s schools.  Each school will be able to use  ALL In’s real-time scanning, bubble sheets, and ALL In Response.  A critical evaluation criteria for McKinney is the ease of use and data collection for instant analysis.

ALL In Learning’s integration with Eduphoria’s Aware gives McKinney an extremely efficient means to collect data at the classroom teacher level and have the results immediately in Aware.  There are significant time and cost savings with the Aware/ALL In connection.  McKinney ISD sees the Aware/ALL In connection as not only complementary technologies but complementary strategies for formative and benchmark assessments.

A central theme of McKinney ISD’s use of ALL In has been the immediate feedback and instant intervention opportunities.  “Our teachers value the immediate conversation they can have with students that ALL In Learning affords.  Our response to intervention, mastery learning approach and PLC strategies have been greatly enhanced with ALL In Learning.  Additionally, we like the green options of both laminated bubble sheets and the ALL In Learning RF clickers,” indicates Joe Miniscalco, Assistant Superintendent for Learner Support.

“Collaborative and long-term partnerships have always been a key driver for our team and partnering with McKinney ISD is another great example,” says Dr. Darrell Ward, CEO of ALL In Learning.  “McKinney’s school and district leadership have contributed to the evolution of our product and the usefulness of our platform.  We are thrilled by their long-term commitment to our platform and anticipate greater interaction and collaboration in the years ahead.  We believe our revolutionary Cloud solution will help teachers grow student progress each day while simultaneously reducing the tedious grading.”
