Mastery Manager is the flagship assessment solution of Goldstar Learning, Inc., a Chicago-based software development company established in 2003 to answer education’s evolving assessment, reporting and data-analysis needs. Mastery Manager is utilized in K-12 schools across the country, in both large and small districts, and in public, private and charter schools.
Mastery Manager was conceived, designed and developed from the ground up by our dedicated software engineers at Goldstar Learning, in collaboration with educators from many schools, including high performing Blue Ribbon schools such as Adlai Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois. From the very beginning, working with Rick Dufour’s PLC assessment team, the Mastery Manager solution has been focused on providing teachers and administrators with real-time, actionable, standards-based achievement data to inform their instruction. The immediacy and depth of the Mastery Manager assessment reports provide educators the timely information they need to quickly identify those students who may be at risk and provide the detailed proficiency information necessary to help raise the level of student learning.
The success of a district’s initiatives for improving student achievement hinges on the teachers fully embracing the assessment tool put in place. We believe that in order to fully support our teachers we must know what it’s like to walk in their shoes. That’s precisely why Mastery Manager’s training and support team is comprised of educators with years of classroom experience to help ensure the successful implementation of your initiatives. The Mastery Manager product that exists today - and that continues to evolve and expand - is the result of listening to the needs of our education partners and quickly responding to those needs.
