Polytechnic Institute (WPI) would like to announce a new round of
funding from the National Science Foundation to help researchers who
have ideas to improve K-12 education. WPI has been running the
ASSISTments platform for eight years, which currently has 50,000
students using it as part of their classwork as well as for homework.
UIC’s Jim Pellegrino is in charge of the advisory board helping guide
the selection of studies.
Researchers from ten universities, including Harvard, Berkeley,
Vanderbilt, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, University of Notre Dame, and
University of Illinois-Chicago, have partnered with WPI to conduct
studies using ASSISTments. Now it is time to get you involved!
If you are interested in learning more, there is a webinar on Monday July 28th at 12:00 noon eastern time zone: https://sites.google.com/site/neilheffernanscv/webinar.
Our goal is to help researchers from across the country conduct studies
suitable for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Over 50 researchers
have already registered. At the webinar, researchers from UIC, Stanford
and WPI will explain how they have done studies in the platform.
ASSISTments is, and will always be, a free public service of WPI.
Please sign-up to learn more how you, your post docs and graduate
students can take advantage of this valuable service. If you cannot
attend the Monday webinar but wish to view it - sign up and we will
send it to you.
