What’s It Like?
To fully engage in what Mindprint Learning offers, students first take an online assessment to measure strengths and challenges. This research-based assessment was developed by the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. For a fifth-grade student, it tests different types of memory, processing speed, attention, flexible thinking, verbal and abstract reasoning, and spatial perception using game-based and timed tests. The entire battery takes about one hour and allows students to max out on tests that are too difficult or if they struggle to finish a task. After completing the assessment, users wait about one week for a psychologist to review the data and formulate the student’s profile.
Price: Paid, but free to try
Pros: An incredible number of resources, strategies, and suggestions for teachers and parents based on a student’s learning strengths and challenges.
Cons: The sheer amount of information provided might be overwhelming for some.
Bottom line: This extraordinary tool uses normed digital assessments to create a specific learning profile and provide authentic tools for individual learners.
