Meeting the educational and training challenges of the 21st century.
We work with schools, digital curriculum providers, tutoring and testing companies, nonprofits and others in the education space, giving them new tools to meet their goals in this exciting world.
With the advent of new, more-rigorous standards for learning and assessment, teachers need scalable solutions that move beyond multiple-choice quizzing. The ESSA, Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards, and National Educational Technology Policy all emphasize the importance of deep understanding and critical thinking. A growing body of research suggests that engaging students in cognitively challenging tasks, providing immediate feedback, ongoing and meaningful assessment and personalizing instruction are key in meeting this goal--but these are difficult to implement at scale. The best way to assess these higher order thinking skills is to ask students to explain ideas in their own words, which is driving an increased use of short-answer and essay writing on high-stakes tests.
To prepare students for the demands of the 21st century, Cognii offers--
Cognii works across the grades 3-12 and subject areas. Here are a few sample applications:
Colleges and universities are eager for methods of delivering quality education to more students, while students demand more engaging and relevant learning experiences tailored to their needs. In todays competitive environment, schools need ways to boost student success and instructor productivity in tandem. Identifying at-risk students and giving all students the level of support they need are key to retention, but a constant challenge. Critical skills such as problem solving and communication are increasingly recognized as essential for career readiness. Competency-based education, micro degrees and other developments with a real-world focus need practical tools for authentic assessment, rather than relying on multiple choice. MOOCs and other large-scale online programs need cost-effective ways to offer students ongoing, meaningful feedback on their work. As the world evolves in the modern AI-age, Cognii is ready to bring its innovation to benefit the Higher Ed market - from enrollment, retention, student support, course design, assessment & credentialing, to scalability.
