Mindprint bridges the gap between neurocognitive assessment and classroom achievement with a low-cost, evidence-based solution for all students. Mindprint identifies the root cause of learning struggles using an online screener of executive functions, memory, reasoning and speed. The battery, developed at Penn Medicine, is group administered in one class period . Results are used to automatically generate personalized learning plans for every student in math, reading, writing, and study skills that include the most effective, evidence-based strategies based on that student’s unique strengths and needs. Integrating cognitive data with traditional achievement data enables teachers to best meet every learner’s needs.
Carnegie Learning, Inc.
Instructional time is precious. Learners are inundated with assessments that crowd out instructional time. Carnegie Learning’s MATHia intelligent tutors already understand what students know through their work on real-world, complex problems, so why ask students to sit for anxiety-provoking tests of low-level skills? The Every Student Succeeds Act enables us to reimagine high-stakes assessments, replacing them with competency-based mastery. Embedding assessment into the learning process and monitoring progress with our Adaptive Personalized Learning Score (APLSE) supports personalized learning without taking away instructional time. This project further refines and tests APLSE, driving development of a replacement for high-stakes and formative assessments.
Trinity College Dublin
Trinity College Dublin has embarked on a renewal of its undergraduate programmes through the Trinity Education Project (TEP). The official impetus was a recognition that the curriculum must continue to evolve in the light of advances in disciplinary knowledge, pedagogy, and that the context in which graduates participate is rapidly changing. The Trinity Assessment Framework is a core element of TEP and is an ambitious institutional pedagogical reform initiative. By reimagining our approaches to assessment, this framework aims to deepen students’ learning, increase their employability, and thus support the complexity of learning needed for the 21st Century graduate.
