NWEA Director of Curriculum Partnerships, Erin Antonius White said, "We are excited to add 3P Learning to our Instructional Connection Program. Our data combined with Mathletics engaging Math content will deliver targeted and individualized instruction for students and provide teachers the tools to monitor student progress and save planning time."

* RIT stands for "Rasch UnIT" and is a scale that measures in equal intervals, regardless of a student's grade or performance—and it remains stable over time.
