A service which quantifies the language difficulties of students by conducting a simple test and then assigning targeted worksheets to correct those difficulties.
Each student has their own worksheet exercises targeted at their own language difficulties.
Built to manage the complexities of evaluating of whole institutions and classes.
Has been thouroughly tested in Universities and schools in five countries.
Has a foundation of 20 years of peer reviewed research. And is currently being used as the primary research tool in numerous international studies.
Ready made for researchers to conduct their own studies on enormous groups of students in a time efficient way. Slice and dice the data across multiple variables, calculate statistics, and access the raw data. All data is already de-identified and certified against university ethical guidelines.
Mitch O'Toole's research into scientific literacy has provided the foundation for this software. He is the one to talk to about literacy or the research behind this product.
Mitch O'Toole has worked in science education at all levels since 1978. This has included fifteen years in universities in Australia and the People's Republic of China and thirteen years as science co-ordinator in various schools. These schools ranged across the age (K-12, 7-10 and 7-12) and system spectra (catholic systemic, catholic independent and independent systems). He has also worked as language across the curriculum co-ordinator in a state high school. Mitch's major research interest, communication in science contexts, has arisen directly from this diverse background and continues to inform his practice as he prepares science teachers at this university.
