As a writer and editor of educational materials for dozens of publishers and developers over more than three decades, I have never worked for a more professional company than Sikana.

...a community of top-notch writers and editors who produce excellent work. I am proud to be one of them...

Hilary and Val entrust me to take ownership of my part of the project, to let me give my best.

What sets Sikana apart is the knowledge that they can have a positive effect in the lives of their clients, their employees, and their community.
- Jeanette Cannon
I have been freelancing in the education field for almost 20 years, and can say without hesitation that Sikana stands out as one of the best companies I have ever worked with.
- Maureen Steddin
Over the past four years, I’ve seen the same clients return again and again, which is perhaps the best indication of just how committed Sikana is...
- Krista O’Connell
Sikana is by far one of my favorite companies to work with because of their quality editors and leaders, ones who provide personal feedback and training if needed – something rarely seen in the freelance world.
- Jenny Benjamin
I had never worked in a virtual environment before, it was all very new to me, but from day one everyone made me feel part of a close knit team.
- Koeppe, Andrea R.
They are consistently organized and team-centered, efficient, and deliberate in all facets of the organization.
- Karen Brinkman
After 35 years in ed publishing, there aren't many developers I recommend heartily to freelancers and clients alike, but Sikana is clearly a cut above.
- Carol Domblewski
there is a down-to-earth, family-based vibe that you can't help but feel.
- Suzanne Francis
The company is genuinely committed to work-life balance and to fair treatment of its workers.
- Liza Keierleber
We appreciate Sikana's ability to deliver consistently high quality and engaging content. Despite working on a new project that neither side had tackled before, the team at Sikana was spot on with delivering what we wanted. The team is knowledgeable, responsive, and thorough, and we look forward to continuing to work together.
- Sara Dalziel, Knewton
Knewton is an exciting new digital learning platform. We really enjoyed developing a series of classroom lessons aligned to Common Core Curriculum standards for Middle School Reading and High School Writing for Knewton.
Curriculum Associates is a trusted publisher of quality educational materials, and Sikana has developed thousands of Reading assessment items and their accompanying passages for Curriculum Associates’ line of READY classroom products.
Over the years 2013-2015, Sikana developed in excess of 7,000 Reading, ELA, and Math assessment items and their accompanying passages for the Fluence (formerly Amplify) item bank.
ETA Hand 2Mind is a mainstay of the K12 publishing industry. Their manipulatives and materials are top-notch. Sikana has worked with ETA on a variety of materials, including the SuperSource Big Books, math and ELA assessment questions, and the Versatiles product line.
We developed hundreds of Reading and ELA assessment items and their accompanying passages for RPC’s Assess to Know item bank.
We developed several hundred Reading assessment items for DRC’s InSight Online Learning System prototype, and developed short narratives, non-fiction articles, and assessment items for CTB's Acuity item bank.
