Web-based platforms enhance teaching and learning in the classroom.
Today, 100,000 schools across the U.S. use an online mathematics tutoring and assessment program developed by an NSF-funded researcher 15 years ago. Called ASSISTments, the innovative platform helps students with their mathematics coursework and teachers with their mathematics instruction.
In Maine, a recent study of more than 2,800 students at 43 public schools using ASSISTments found that students scored 75 percent higher on a standardized test of mathematics achievement than students at schools without the program.
