With Inq-ITS students engage in interactive science labs while receiving real time coaching. Teachers get alerts when kids struggle. Schools get the data they need to demonstrate growth. Students get individualized help while students engage in inquiry, they get personalized help in real time from Rex, the virtual coach. Teachers get actionable data. While students work, teachers get real time, automatic grading, tracking, and alerts to support instruction and provide 1:1 help. Schools track growth. Inq-ITS reports provide teachers, schools, and districts with the data they need to demonstrate student growth in science.
I saw Inq-ITS demonstrated at the NSTA regional conference in National Harbor last fall. I am very impressed with the smooth integration of artificial intelligence to “read” the students’ written work on the Claim-Evidence-Reasoning component, the speed with which they can perform virtual lab trials (6th graders love manipulating every variable and running dozens of trials), and the accuracy of the diagnosis coming back in real time. My kids in three weeks have gone from not understanding independent and dependent variables to writing rich, deep, quality lab reports. I look forward to using it to prepare them for writing tasks on the obligatory state tests.
