LS Test Builder combines student assessment and reporting capabilities with effective remediation and instruction resources from netTrekker
LearningStation and Thinkronize Partner to Provide Standards-Based Differentiated Instruction

Charlotte, NC, June 30, 2008 - LearningStation, a leading provider of online solutions for the K-12 classroom, and Thinkronize, the developer of netTrekker, America's number one educational search engine, today launched a joint instructional solution that provides standards-based differentiated instruction, ultimately advancing student achievement. LS Test Builder, an e-learning tool that enables educators to easily create, deliver and assess standards-based formative practice tests, is now fully integrated with netTrekker's contextually relevant, safe, and easy-to-use educational database of over 180,000 educator-selected resources.

Through the partnership, teachers can link directly from LS Test Builder assessment data to specific remediation material tailored to students' individual needs. The partnership also enables LearningStation and Thinkronize to offer a combined learning solution to their respective customers. The two companies share expertise in providing secure, effective, easy-to-use technology for educators; integrating their offerings increases the benefit for users of both online educational solutions. LearningStation and Thinkronize have collaborated on a statewide effort in Kansas since 2005.

"netTrekker's comprehensive database of K-12 standards-aligned, digital resources is an ideal partner for the new LS Test Builder Direct Connect functionality," said Jim Kirchner, CEO of LearningStation. "These combined tools enable daily classroom instruction that is engaging and effective."

Delivered through LearningStation's single sign-on portal, LS Test Builder's teacher-inspired interface enables educators to easily create standards-aligned tests using custom, district-provided or state-released practice questions. Educators can draw from thousands of preloaded test questions for language arts, math, social studies and science in grades 3-12 as well as save and share tests with teachers across schools and districts. Additionally, teachers can deliver tests to students through an intuitive online interface and evaluate both student and class performance through a variety of reports. Combined with netTrekker's educational database, LS Test Builder reports include recommendations and intelligent links to targeted, integrated instructional content.

"LS Test Builder's test-creating and reporting capabilities combined with netTrekker's standards-based educational resources go hand in hand," said Randy Wilhelm, CEO of Thinkronize. "This partnership allows us to deliver a powerful instructional solution that educators can use to effectively instruct students of all levels and abilities in order to positively impact academic achievement."

netTrekker's award-winning educational search engine contains hundreds of thousands of standards-aligned resources from the entire Internet. Resources in the netTrekker database are educator approved to ensure that they are safe to use as well as academically relevant and appropriate for specific grade levels. netTrekker's database is organized by readability and grade level for fast, easy selection of educational content to address every student's learning needs, including ELL/ESL and special needs learners.

"The seamless connection between LS Test Builder and netTrekker supports differentiated instruction in our schools," said Dr. Milt Dougherty, Superintendent of Little River Schools, Kansas. "Standards-aligned resources from LS Test Builder and netTrekker ensure that our curriculum directly impacts student achievement."
