A focus on inquiry
Apprendis' flagship product, Inq-ITS, reflects years of research into how students conduct inquiry, how they learn from it, and how to measure the practice of scientific inquiry. Inq-ITS challenges students to "show what they know" by demonstrating skills for every aspect of inquiry - hypothesizing, collecting data, analyzing data, and communicating findings. A classroom dashboard enables teachers to monitor their students' progress as they work so they can give them targeted help when they need it most. Inq-ITS also includes an automated helper who can jump-in with personalized help for the student if the teacher is not available, or if they are working at home.
Inq-ITS for Middle School Physical Science will be launching soon! See inqits.com for more information.
