Allowing teachers to collect one-on-one reading data and provide students with a personalized literacy education.

Literator is a powerful tool that makes it easy for teachers to effectively help their students by offering standard-aligned strategies, fast data collection and visualization, and a platform that facilitates communication between parents, administrators, and colleagues. Literator takes the guesswork out of next steps for students with intuitive prompts, highlighted trends, and automatic groupings. As teachers use the instructional tool, Literator collects and transmutes data into actionable insights with performance predictions, integration with attendance data, and comparisons between grades and demographics. Schools no longer need to rely on expensive and time-consuming assessments to track student performance because Literator provides all the instructional support and information in real time. Literator's awards include TechStars Startup Weekend EDU in 2015, Teach for America Social Innovation Award 2016, Tech Inclusion Change Catalyst Startup Award 2017, and the Camelback Ventures Fellowship 2017.
