Developing strong science and math skills early is key to student success later in life. Improving the effectiveness of elementary education in mathematics and science is a national priority, as is finding better ways for school systems to assess how well students are learning and how well teachers are teaching. At WPI, a large and well-funded team of researchers in computer science and the learning sciences is developing web-based intelligent tutoring systems that can simultaneously tutor students and assess their progress. The systems help teachers adjust their lessons to meet student needs, help parents know where their children stand, and help schools do assessment in real time--all without sacrificing time devoted to education.
