The illuminate DnA software is a student data and assessment system used by our K-12 school district. It is used across the organization by administrators, teachers, and clerical staff. It allows users to create and administer online assessments, store state and local assessment results, and create custom reports for a variety of uses.
  • It provides a comprehensive profile of students across time, allowing users to track growth and identify at-risk students.
  • It is easy for all users to create ad hoc reports and assessments.
  • The company is continually adding features recommended by users.
  • The helpline is accessible to all end users, calls are readily answered, and the support staff is knowledgeable.
  • It would be nice if it communicated in real time with our other student database systems. We have to do a nightly update to share information with other systems, and still, some data gets stuck and needs to be "wiped".
  • The intervention tracking system, OnTrack, is difficult to set up and manage.
  • Assessment item banks could offer a better variety of items.
I think it is well suited for K-12 schools, especially for tracking student growth over time. The ability to easily upload state assessment results and produce pre-built reports provides teachers actionable data. The online assessment system is more appropriate for secondary (grades 6-12) students in our district due to the types of assessments our elementary (K-5) students complete.

I have some experience with other systems and think that the illuminate software offers more flexibility in the types of data that can be stored.

We use it school-wide for assessment creation, administration and data analysis to inform instruction and personalize learning. Illuminate has the ability to generate a great level of insightful reports without great amounts of effort. When building assessments you have a couple of different options that allow for a wide variety of question types that are standards aligned.
  • Online assessment creation
  • Online assessment administration
  • Data analysis
  • Data tracking
  • Front end interface needs to have more tools
  • Language and semantics of the system can be cumbersome
  • Updating the system is time consuming
Great for a school with dedicated IT support and technology available. Limited tech environments will find it hard to leverage the power of the tool. The data is easy to pull out and use with many reports available quickly from available options. There are additional options for building your own reports based on your own needs.
