MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Edmentum (edmentum.com),
a global leader and pioneer in online teaching and learning programs,
announced a new partnership today with Reflection Sciences, Inc.
Edmentum and Reflection Sciences will partner to deliver a full
integration of Reflection Science’s Minnesota Executive Function Scale
(MEFS AppTM) assessment into Exact Path’s individualized
learning program. This unique partnership brings together Reflection
Sciences’ extensive expertise in executive functioning research and
assessment with Edmentum’s long history in digital curriculum,
assessments, and education consulting.

“At Edmentum, we are on a journey to provide outcome-based tools that
enable educators to develop and support the whole child. I am extremely
proud to announce our exclusive partnership for the K–12 space with
Reflection Sciences” said Jamie Candee, Edmentum chief executive
officer. As leaders in education technology, it is our responsibility to
help educators support not only their students’ academic well-being but
also their social and emotional well-being; strong age-appropriate
executive function skills are the foundation for both. We believe this
partnership will allow our education partners to pinpoint student needs
in a manner that is holistic, data-informed, and streamlined for
efficiency of precious instructional time.”

Founded by Professors Stephanie Carlson and Phil Zelazo from the
University of Minnesota, Reflection Sciences has a strong early track
record. The MEFS assessment is a quick and engaging game for young
students that also provides valid and reliable data for educators and
parents on a student’s executive function skills. In turn, Edmentum
delivers rigorous, research-based digital curriculum that helps
personalize learning and meets the evolving needs of schools and
districts. This powerful partnership will serve the whole child like
never before.

“Research consistently shows that executive function skills are the
roots of academic and social emotional skill development.” said Jeff
Shelstad, Reflection Sciences’ chief executive officer. “We are
extremely excited to embark on this innovative path forward that
supports the unique needs of every child and educator. This new
partnership brings together two leaders in the industry that are fully
committed to this mission in an innovative and engaging way.”
