Because cognitive skills drive academic and personal skills and explain much of the variability in student achievement, the predictive analytics of how a student learns can be combined with traditional academic assessments to enable differentiated instruction and optimal learning pathways.
PRINCETON, N.J. (PRWEB) December 11, 2017
Mindprint Learning, is thrilled to announce it has won the Gold Award in Learning Assessment from Reimagine Education, the prestigious international competition rewarding transformational initiatives aimed at enhancing student learning outcomes. In addition to winning the Learning Assessment category, Mindprint was one of the 10 overall finalists in the education industry to emerge from a total of 1,041 nominations, finishing 2nd among EdTech companies. The award signifies the company’s leadership and innovation in using technology and non-academic data to redefine the way learners are assessed so educators are able to differentiate academic instruction, personalize learning and deliver curriculum through the most optimal learning pathways.
“This is wonderful recognition for our team and a reflection of the tremendous interest we are seeing in the marketplace for objective and actionable data beyond traditional achievement data that measures how students learn best in addition to what they know,” said Mindprint CEO Nancy Weinstein. “In addition to helping educators understand and address current academic and behavioral struggles through learner profiles, personalized learning plans and evidence-based strategies, Mindprint’s unparalleled ability to accurately assess skills such as executive functions, problem solving, and complex reasoning enables teachers to anticipate academic struggles before they occur. This naturally leads to improvements in student engagement, motivation and overall learning outcomes.”
Earlier last week, Mindprint took the stage to present to an audience of the top edtech investors and industry leaders at SIIA Innovation Showcase. Mindprint was one seven finalists at the Business Education Forum annual event in Washington, D.C.
Mindprint provides objective, non-academic data for learner profiles and personalized learning plans. Through valid, digital assessment Mindprint can efficiently and accurately identify the root cause of learning struggles and areas of giftedness for all students beginning in the second grade. Our learner profiles integrate non-academic data with academic achievement data to enable teachers to provide intervention for struggling learners, enrichment for gifted learners, and personalized instruction by academic topic, study skills and test prep for every student. We are currently being used across the country by public schools, private schools, tutors and parents to improve learning outcomes and support social-emotional needs.
Because cognitive skills drive academic and personal skills (e.g., growth mindset, self-regulation, etc.) and explain much of the variability in student achievement, the predictive analytics of how a student learns can be combined with traditional academic assessments to enable teachers to efficiently differentiate instruction using any curriculum or improve upon the machine learning embedded in any adaptive learning platform. Incorporating reliable, objective non-academic data into Learning Analytics has enormous potential to optimize learning pathways and accelerate learning success. In addition, career success in many fields is highly correlated with specific cognitive skills. The potential to identify and cultivate students’ strengths earlier can have a direct positive impact on lifetime career success.
