IO Education

Founded at the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education, CaseNEX, now known as IO Education, supports educators through an online, case-based approach. Multimedia cases, or “slices of life,” form a realistic connection between professional learning and the complex school environment.


Turn your plans into action with IO Education. For over 18 years IO Education has helped school districts bring their plans to life. Connecting students, parents, district staff and administrators is key to student success. We have what you need to achieve your goals, from the classroom to the district level.
IO Education is focused on improving outcomes for three areas of school districts: student achievement, educator effectiveness and operational efficiency.

At the core of IO Education is the K-12 Data Platform that aggregates data from existing classroom, district and state systems and makes that data insightful and actionable through the IO Education products. The products are developed as extensible modules that integrate with the K-12 Data Platform, which allow educators to pick both the integrations and solutions they require at implementation and extend the solution over time – to bring important plans to life.

The products from IO Education are used in all 50 states by over 8,000 school administrators, 150,000 educators with 6,000,000 student records and growing.

Driven by its mission to improve educational outcomes, in 2016 IO Education merged with the Educator’s Assessment Data Management System (EADMS), a leading provider since 2000 of K-12 assessment and data management software. This merger shines a spotlight on using assessment data to drive student growth; it offers educators’ access to an extensive array of assessments, items, and assessment-specific capabilities while at the same time offering the use of powerful student data collection, management, and analysis tools.

The merger brought together both companies’ highly complementary product portfolios, including BaselineEdge, DataCation, and the research-based Phonological Awareness Literacy Assessment (PALS) to become the leading provider of student data analytics, classroom management, teacher professional development and parent communication solutions. The integrated platform enables teachers, school district administrators and parents to effectively monitor student achievement and address academic performance gaps.

In 2017 eSchoolData joined the IO Education team -expanding our strong presence in the Northeast and heightening the value we can deliver to our clients through continued product integration and enhancement. Learn more about eSchoolData here.
