InventHelp® Client Invents a Better Way to Confirm a Student's Understanding of a Subject (FRC-101)

Share Article

InventHelp, America's leading inventor service company, attempts to submit an invention, M R G Grid, to companies for review.

When a teacher wants to confirm students understand the lesson being taught, a variety of methods have been tested. First came the chalk and chalkboards with dust-filled erasers, then whiteboards and costly dry erase pens with messy ink filled cloths. These classroom response tools have played a very important function within the classroom for every teacher, primarily to check for understanding of a lesson being taught. Unfortunately, many teachers find the current response tools cumbersome and time consuming. What if each student could have their own compact, lightweight, no-mess, no-running-out-of-ink response tool to use?

The MRG grid is the answer. Frustrated by increasing budget cuts, a teacher from Turlock has developed an inexpensive class-tested prototype as an alternative. This next-generation response tool actually fits into a binder and will be at the top of the "back-to-school" supply list of every student worldwide. Why? No pens to buy, no messy erasers, no teacher time-management problems, just a simple, inexpensive, environmentally friendly response tool to answer the age-old dilemma of chalk and dry erase pens.

As an educator for 33 years, he was looking to enhance the method of checking for understanding in a simple, yet inexpensive way. "I've taught using chalk, chalkboards, pens, and whiteboards and there had to be a more efficient and easier way. My design is double-sided, easy to use, and has an unlimited source of non-mess "ink," making it ideal for classroom use."

The original design was submitted to the San Francisco office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
