    SADDLE BROOK, N.J., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Peoples
 Education(TM), the New Jersey-based publisher and marketer of print and
 electronic supplementary educational material, is pleased to announce their
 new Measuring Up Express(TM) for the ISAT series. The new series is a
 spin-off of their successful state standards-based Measuring Up(R) program
 that has helped raise test scores and improve student performance on the
 standards in 12 states. The Express version will focus primarily on
 preparing students for their state test.
     Measuring Up Express(TM) targets 100% of the Illinois Assessment
 Frameworks as well as select Illinois Learning Standards. Other distinctive
 features of the program are: condensed student worktext lessons with
 focused skill instruction and test-taking tips, assessment practice that
 matches the format of the ISAT, extended-response sections, and free print
 formative and summative assessments plus a free teacher edition with
 assessment guide. Also available is Measuring Up e-Path(R), an online
 formative and summative assessment program, which allows educators to
 choose from pre-created tests or to create their own using the Illinois
 Assessment Framework Objectives. A robust reporting system pinpoints areas
 that the student(s) need extra help with and provides a path to the
 specific Measuring Up Express(TM) lessons for more instruction, review,
 and/or practice.
     "We listened closely to the market and realized they needed a program
 devoted to preparing students for the ISAT," said Brian Beckwith, President
 and CEO. "With Measuring Up Express(TM) we created an easy-to-use test
 preparation package with questions that match the ISAT, targeted
 instruction, and plenty of extended-response practice. This is a more
 focused version of our successful Measuring Up(R) program, catering
 specifically to the ISAT."
     Measuring Up Express(TM), which is now available, is being sold this
 school year at a special introductory price and will be available in
 mathematics grades 3-8.
