Corporate Partners



Cignition and TeachFX are collaborating on a project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to better understand student engagement in tutoring sessions and increase student engagement by providing automated instructional feedback to tutors. The project will adapt and improve TeachFX’s existing automated teacher feedback technology for use in Cignition online tutoring sessions, with a specific focus on enabling tutors to better engage students who are Black, Latinx and/or low-income and who are receiving math tutoring.



‘21-’22 school year grant-funded partnership through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for BCPS (7 different 6th-grade school sites){1 teacher at each school, a total of 229 students, 24 sessions over 12 weeks}. The main focus was to evaluate the efficacy of the use of Assistments dashboard on group learning. Was there a difference in growth between those who had access to the dashboard and those who did not? And how much?
