Description

Educational Software for Guiding Instruction (ESGI) was founded in 2002 based on the need to provide real-time effective student performance data metrics that would help drive instruction outside of the traditional, paper-based assessment system.  Soon thereafter, the Educational Software for Guiding Instruction (ESGI) web-based assessment and reporting system was born. This online system manages the thousands of bits of data involved with tracking student mastery of letters, sounds, sight words, number sense, and more.
