ASSISTments is an online homework tool coupled with teacher training, providing students with math assistance and teachers with assessments of student progress

There are two types of ASSISTment content - the first is linked to existing textbook homework problems and provides teachers the flexibility to assign suitable problem sets and the second is intended for mastery-oriented skill practice. In its successful evaluation, the intervention included professional development and coaching designed to increase teachers’ readiness and efficacy in using ASSISTments.

Four Simple STEPS

1. Build Assignments

Teachers use content from their favorite curriculum, textbook or custom problems and assign through Google Classroom

Teachers can assign is a wide variety of existing or custom problems. Whether you use one of the free curriculums (such as Illustrative Mathematics or Engage NY), a textbook (such as Big Ideas or Pearson), or prefer to write your own problems, ASSISTments is flexible to teacher needs.

3. Assess Class Performance

Powerful reports reveal necessary areas for attention through performance analytics, common wrong answers, and skill areas.

Teachers can assign is a wide variety of existing or custom problems. Whether you use one of the free curriculums (Teachers can view real-time assignment reports detailing student and class performance to inform daily instruction. Teachers know how long students worked, correct and incorrect responses, as well as hints and answers accessed by students. The class report highlights common wrong answers and gives percent correct by problem, so that teachers understand where students need support before students enter the classroom.such as Illustrative Mathematics or Engage NY), a textbook (such as Big Ideas or Pearson), or prefer to write your own problems, ASSISTments is flexible to teacher needs.

4. Make Class Time More Effective

Class time and instruction is targeted to student needs for maximum engagement and learning.

The assignment report can revolutionize homework review. By assessing detailed areas student performance, teachers can discuss common wrong answers, helping help clear up common misconceptions and mis-steps. Class time becomes more effective, because teachers and students can focus instruction on specific areas of student need.

GET STARTED

E-TRIALS is a research platform that relies on ASSISTments data and infrastructure. Developed according to the principles of open science, the platform allows researchers to design their own experiments, share data, and build on the work of others. ASSISTments is committed to student privacy, and takes steps to ensure that users remain anonymous during the research process and that private data remains secure

In this study, we put the ASSISTments platform to the test to understand the impact of artificial intelligence in education for web-based homework in comparison to traditional homework. We found that students learned reliably more in the web-based homework condition, even without the benefits of additional tutoring features such as hints and feedback messages.

We ran a randomized controlled trial on two ASSISTments features: Skill Builders and Automatic Reassessment and Relearning System (ARRS). These features allow teachers to assign individual skills practice sets. Students are automatically reassessed on these skills, and assigned relearning skill builders to ensure they retain mastery the skill set. Our study showed greater performance on those those skills that were reassessed and relearned.

SRI International ran an independent study on the efficacy of ASSISTments. This study allowed ASSISTments to meet the highest What Works Clearinghouse standard for “positive effect without reservations” and to receive a Tier 1 rating by Evidence for ESSA. The study showed that with the use of ASSISTments:

  • Teachers targeted class time to student difficulties and errors
  • Students had significantly higher end-of-year mathematics achievement.
  • Online homework had greater impact for students with low prior achievement

2. Assist Students Through Immediate Feedback

Students receive immediate feedback and guidance on homework assignments.

As students complete their assignment, they may receive hints and explanations to assist them in their understanding of the problems. They will know immediately if their answer is right or wrong, can make multiple attempts, and can work towards partial credit. At the end of each assignment, each student receives an outcome report, detailing their performance.
