What Our Partners Say: North Carolina “CASE Assessments of TE21 has given our teachers the opportunity to analyze student performance in an effective and efficient manner to maximize student learning and really find where the heart of our work needs to be… Finding where issues are and having the data to back it up makes it easier for teachers to create learning environments that pinpoint specific needs rather than providing more small group instruction with no real guidance or direction. CASE Assessments helps with keeping the end in mind, and their support team has done a fantastic job of giving the world of data a personal touch.” Jeffrey Rachlin, Principal, New Hope Elementary School, Orange County Schools
