Tell me more about the data

For each student, there is really granular data against about 500 individual learning statements; organised by topic and year level within the curriculum/syllabus. This is also wrapped up into student levels by topic area.

Reference data from tens of thousands of students across Australia is used. Those students were tested directly on each one of those 500 individual learning statements independently - which takes much longer than 30 minutes. Using this reference data, adaptive algorithms can make excellent statistical inferences like any artificial intelligence (AI) computer system.

Sure, but what is the catch?

When we say free we mean free! All you need to do is sign up to gain access. Once you run the diagnostic with your class you will have the option to book a 30 minutes call with one of our consultants to unlock these bonus features: use with all your classes, unpack the data and discuss insights with an expert, access energisers and lesson plans you can immediately use with your class.. And yes, all this is FREE!
