ARLINGTON, VA-- OCTOBER 03, 2017--Hobsons, the leading provider of college and career readiness solutions, today announced an integration between its Naviance platform and Clever, a data integration tool that makes it easy for districts to securely manage student data within learning environments. Students at participating school districts can now access Naviance through an easy-to-use dashboard streamlining the login process, leaving more time for college and career discovery, planning and counseling. Staff will gain access to Naviance through the Clever dashboard later this school year.
Survey data has shown that 25 percent of students’ digital learning time is wasted on set-up, troubleshooting and logging on to online platforms. By providing a new, seamless integration with Clever, Naviance will enable students to maximize time spent on the actual college and career preparation process, discovering strengths and finding best-fit postsecondary options. District administrators, seeking effective ways to scale learning applications across the student body, will see increased efficiency through real-time data updates, including transferring student's Naviance accounts when they change schools within a district.
Schools or districts that have Naviance District Edition and Clever can add Naviance to the Clever Instant Login portal, making it easier for students to access their college and career planning tools in Naviance. Clever is currently used by more than 60,000 schools and is available to schools and districts at no cost.
“At Hobsons, we are committed to improving access, usability and scalability for our district clients so they can more effectively equip all of their students with the resources they need to plan for their post-high school education,” said Kate Cassino, CEO of Hobsons. “We’re pleased to provide this capability for districts so they can efficiently manage access to learning applications for large student populations.”
Benefits of the Naviance integration with Clever include:
- Instant Login: Students can quickly and easily access Naviance from the Clever portal where they access many learning applications.
- Up-to-Date Information: Student data in Naviance is kept up to date and secure by syncing the district’s student information system with Naviance.
- Easier User Management: When student accounts are created, made inactive or transferred to other schools within the district, the updates are reflected in Naviance within 2 hours after the student information system syncs with Clever.
"Naviance is one of of the most widely used products in K-12 school districts, so we're thrilled to be welcoming them to the Clever platform," said Tyler Bosmeny, CEO at Clever. “Through this partnership, we're looking forward to helping schools achieve their college and career readiness goals."

Clever was founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable. Today, half of K-12 schools in the U.S. trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom. In 2014, Clever won the ‘Crystal Clear’ award by the Digital Innovation Learning Awards. It is also the trusted provider of the American Federation of Teachers, who uses Clever to secure its own ‘Share my Lesson’ platform with its teacher members. Backed by Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Partners, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, and GSV Capital, Clever currently has 100 employees and is based in San Francisco, California.
