Case Study: Iowa Department of Education: Iowa Core

About the Project

Iowa’s Department of Education chose Promet Source to build their Iowa Core website as an independent website with improved functionality, UI/UX, SEO and strategy for growth. Promet Source brought myriad experience in the education sector having worked with Chicago Public Schools, Conceptual Academy (online learning system) and numerous universities including Marquette, University of Northern Iowa, Rowan University. University of Southern Mississippi, and many more. Promet is recognized for delivering Drupal-based solutions that provide these organizations with complex integrations, interactive features, online communities and best-in-class information architecture.

The Iowa Core (formerly known as the Iowa Core Curriculum and the Model Core Curriculum) provides academic expectations for all of Iowa's K-12 students. The site provides educators a well-researched set of standards in literacy and mathematics and essential concepts and skills in science, social studies, and 21st century learning (civic literacy, financial literacy, technology literacy, health literacy, and employability skills). It identifies the essential content and instruction of critical content areas that all students must experience.

Promet Source built the Iowa Core website with strong UI/UX, improved access to curriculum and resources, improved social features, strong SEO configuration, and a strategy for future content creation. Further, the site was created with a responsive design; the site will adjust fluidly between desktop, mobile and tablet. Additionally, Promet developed a site adhering to best practices in website architecture, navigation and front end design.
