Atlas was Designed and Built with Purpose

Simplify a Critical and Complex Process

Bring everything together.  Course goals, units of instruction, learning outcomes/standards, assessments, lessons, teaching resources and more all thoughtfully aligned and in one place.

Build effective units of instruction. Atlas aids the creation of aligned, ready-to-teach units and helps organize the resources needed to instruct them.

Gain immediate insight. Get real-time information while you’re designing, helping you make the tough decisions.

Make mandated learning expectations work for you.  Atlas simplifies unpacking, deconstructing, prioritizing and sequencing of standards or outcomes.

Be in control.  With full web-administration you can be in complete control of your process and every contributor’s role in it.

Tailor a Curriculum System to Your Curriculum Initiatives

Custom system configuration. Whether you are creating curriculum centrally as a team to share with all teachers, or you’re a teacher just trying to get better organized, Atlas can be configured to support your work.

Curriculum Templates to match your design approach. The way you design curriculum and the unit templates you need to do so will always be reflected in your system, even when they evolve.

Architected to support your processes. Types of curriculum, review cycles and adoption processes can also all be built in to support your most important processes.

Manage learning targets.  Atlas supports alignment with virtually any set of standards or outcomes, all managed by our team and placed neatly and intentionally in your system.

Map character development.  Give prominence to frequently hidden curriculum components critical to your student’s growth such as beliefs, values, and social-emotional learning skills.

Multiple languages supported.  Configure your view of the system in any of 14 different languages.

Connect the dots between student performance and curriculum.

Bring to Light Insight and Context

Immediate access to information. Easy-to-use reporting delivers quick access to the information you need, at the moment when you need it.

Comparative analysis of any curriculum. Scope and Sequences, curriculum comparisons, and side-by-side analyses are an automatic byproduct of designing curriculum in Atlas.

Target learning outcomes in real-time. Ensure full alignment to student learning outcomes via progress reporting and direct links to what’s missing or redundant.

Design your own portal to relevant activity. Personalize your dashboard to provide the insights you need, and watch improvements happen dynamically.
