Products

We make useful, usable, beautiful software tools for your schools and classrooms.

The following products are available or in-development.

Contact us to learn how to bring these tools to your instructors and instructional leaders.


RTITracker

Your teachers are burdened by the record-keeping and scheduling of RTI.

RTITracker manages your RTI record-keeping and scheduling. Your teachers make the important decisions and then RTITracker orchestrates the implementation.

RTITracker finds candidates for Tier II and Tier III intervention and then:

  • Asks teachers to choose diagnostics and/or interventions.
  • Assigns aides or teachers to complete assigned interventions.
  • Records and charts progress monitoring results.
  • Asks teachers to conclude, renew, or revise their interventions according to student progress.

RTITracker fits your RTI plan:

  • Use your plan's assessments and interventions.
  • Enter your own cut points for intervention.
  • Your rostering attaches students, teachers, and instructional aides to classes.

RTITracker is the support your teachers need to implement your RTI plan with fidelity. And RTITracker comes with several progress-monitoring assessments that can be completed in-program

Kuskok

Some of your students aren't ready for today's math lesson.

Share your unit plan with Kuskok; it knows which students need what review. Kuskok is your classroom aide to mathematics instruction and assessment.

Kuskok for Administrators

  • Measure student growth based on the skills that are being taught in the classroom.
  • Student growth assessment occurs throughout the year while students complete online classroom assignments: there is no need for separate testing days.

Kuskok for Teachers

Pick a skill to teach and then:

  • Plan a path through the tree of math skills to reach that skill.
  • View a report on how well your students can perform in each of the prerequisites.
  • Print worksheets for relevant skills, and assign those skills to the students' online assessment and review.
  • Monitor students' skill acquisition online.

Kuskok organizes mixed review for your students based on each student's difficulty or ability on each problem type.

Kuskok does not provide instruction; it aides any program of instruction used in your classroom. Kuskok monitors and reports on skill acquisition, advises the teacher on pre-requisite skills and their students' abilities, provides online skill practice, and organizes optimally-timed mixed-review.

Mnego

Your students are forgetting the facts.

Mnego manages fact-retention and frees you to teach the bigger picture.

Mnego is an online-flashcard manager for schools and districts. Create cards based on your own unique course content, share with other teachers in your district, or use our built-in card sets. Mnego features:

  • Spaced Repetition

    New facts require more frequent review; more practiced cards can be reviewed less frequently. If you teach your students to identify the Mississippi River on a map on Monday, that fact might need to be reviewed the next day and again on Thursday. Subsequent reviews might occur on the following Monday, then on Friday, then a week later, then two weeks after that, then a month later, etc.

    Mnego uses scientific models of learning and memory to find "just the right time" to present each card to each student. Your students won't be frustrated either by wasting time reviewing facts they know too well or by being asked to recall facts that they have long-since forgotten.

  • Cards Follow Students Until Graduation

    You teach life-long learners. When you assign the Nations of the Middle East card set, those cards do not get removed from your students' decks when they move on to the next grade. Those cards will remain with your students for as long as they are in a school using Mnego.

    Using the principle of spaced repetition, cards assigned in elementary school may only need to be reviewed twice a year by the time that student reaches high school. This is how Mnego maintains an entire education's worth of facts using only a few minutes a day.


  • Adaptive Intervals

    Different students have different abilities to remember different facts. Each time Mnego presents a card, it gets simple feedback from the student that helps it schedule the next repetition. A fact forgotten or only barely remembered is re-presented sooner than a fact easily remembered.

  • Cultured Card Sets

    Sometimes facts change: the UK promotes a new Prime Minister or Canada splits one territory into two. Your students are not constrained to the facts of the world as they stood when they first learned them. When change happens, Mnego updates your students' cards.


InterSIS

InterSIS is a free, complete student information system for schools and districts. Host it yourself for free, or choose from one of our recommended hosting service providers. InterSIS provides the basis for rostering in all of our other products: if you use InterSIS for your student information system, then rostering and account creation in all other products is automatically completed. And InterSIS is adding SIF compliance.

InterSIS is also a secure store of student information that any educational software developer can use. If your district uses InterSIS, you can easily share your rostering and login authorization with any other software that uses InterSIS.

Consulting

We'll make the software you need.

Tell us your problem, and we'll design software to solve it. Here are a few examples of problems we would love to tackle:

Do you have a new initiative that requires significant record keeping and protocol management?

We'll design a workflow and software that makes your initiative easy to implement with minimal teacher-inservice.

Do your students begin the year with an opaque mix of prerequisite ability?

Our consultants might construct a skills-based gradebook that can tell next-year's teachers which skills each student will need to review.

Are you managing your state assessment results in a giant Excel file, and struggling for hours or days each year to generate the reports you need?

Our system can securely store those results, and we'll engineer custom reports that you can build with a single click.


As educators, we've seen plenty of old, clunky software. When we design software, our consultants interview all users—teachers, administrators, and students—to make sure that our products satisfy your needs in the most usable way possible.

About Us

We are former educators making beautiful, usable, artificially intelligent software tools
that integrate into teachers' and administrators' daily practice.

User-Oriented Design

As former teachers, we know that a tool which is anything less than a pleasure to use will go unused. All of our design includes extensive interviews and observation with teachers, administrators, and students to make sure that our products satisfy your needs in the most clear, straight-forward, and easy-to-use way possible.

We're not satisfied with designing software that can be used to help your students; we make software that will be used to help your students.

Theory

The artificial intelligence embedded into several of our products is built on well-developed theories of inference and learning. Here are some examples:

Optimal Review

Optimal review is the science of picking the best possible time to present a student with a review question. If we wait too long to present a review question, the student may have forgotten how to solve the problem. If we present a review question too early, we are taking up time which may be better spent reviewing a different skill.

Scientists have known for the last century that the likelihood of forgetting a piece of knowledge over time can be modeled by a simple exponential curve. New information has a very steep likelihood to be forgotten, while familiar facts have a much shallower forgetting curve.

Our computers pick the best time for a student to review a skill. As the student continues to demonstrate their ability to use the skill correctly, the program presents that skill less frequently, leaving time to review more recently acquired skills.

A Tree of Knowledge

How are academic skills related? Some skills are prerequisites to other skills: a student can't add fractions with unlike denominators unless they're also able to identify common multiples, produce equivalent fractions, and add integer numerators. Other skills are agonists: sometimes students confuse the strategy for adding fractions with the strategy for multiplying fractions.

If your student knows how to add fractions with unlike denominators, we consider that evidence towards their ability to identify common multiples, etc. Graph Theory and other well-developed mathematical sciences help us use this inferential evidence to make the best use of time during assessments and probe the causes of failed responses.
