Curriculum and Assessment

We leverage our decades of cumulative experience in Curriculum and Assessment to develop tens of thousands of items and curriculum pages each year for our clients’ K–12 audiences. Our teams are divided by grade band and subject area, and we specialize in highly tailored digital and print content that has been proven time and time again to be greatly impactful to students who utilize our materials worldwide.

Our passage development team works hand-in-hand with our curriculum and assessment development teams to ensure a precise correlation between passages and instructional or assessment content. As a result, there is never a disconnect between our passages and their corresponding instructional or assessment content.  

We work in all major subject areas of K–12, including Math, ELA, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and ELL, in addition to creative arts. Inksplash places a strong emphasis on STEM and STEAM, and our teams are highly adept at both print-based materials and online interactive modeling, manipulatives, and simulations.
