  1. Learning to Code with a Pretend Play Storytelling Model

    SBC: CODESPARK, INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In previous research and development, the developers created codeSpark, a game that employs a visual and block-based approach with puzzles to teach programming skills to children ages 5 to 9 years old. In this project, the developers will create a prototype of a fantasy-based story to be integrated within the existing game. The pretend-play scenarios will include characters, storylines, and incent ...

  2. Graspable Math Activities

    SBC: GRASPABLE INC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through previous grant awards from IES, researchers developed Graspable Math, a tablet-based intervention where middle and high school students create and manipulate complex expressions for basic operations as well as equations and equations systems and inequalities. In this project, the team will develop a prototype of Graspable Math Activities, an app with novel kinds of algebra practice and ass ...

  3. Structured Adaptivity for Computer Science Coding

    SBC: ZYANTE INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In this project, the team will develop a prototype of a web-based coding progression tool for high school students to practice coding from easy to successively harder levels. The prototype will provide graded practice exercises, solutions, and explanations for important coding tasks. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study in five high school classrooms, the researchers will examine whether the pr ...

  4. Interactive Audio Technology to build Phonological Awareness and Early Childhood Literacy

    SBC: HOOGALIT, INC.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    Phonological awareness, the ability to identify and manipulate sounds in words, is the strongest determinant of future reading ability. The developers have created an interactive phonological audio tool for preschool-aged children to listen to passages and learn and practice the basic sounds that make up words. In this project, they will improve this tool by developing a new prototype software app ...

  5. Sustainable Systems-Level Change for Literacy Outcomes

    SBC: Learning Ovations, Inc.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    Through a series of IES-funded projects, the researchers developed the Assessment-to-Instruction (A2i) tool, including a Phase 1 SBIR project in 2014. A2i is an online platform to provide students with individualized literacy instruction and assessments. This project will develop a digital library for teachers that generates personalized resources for each student. The prototype will include migra ...

  6. AI-Driven Formative Assessments for Hands-on Science

    SBC: MYRIAD SENSORS, INC.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    With Phase I and Phase II funding from prior IES-funded SBIR project, the developer created a wireless device that transmits scientific data from hands-on experiments carried out by middle school students to a dashboard that presents results from student work in real-time. This project will develop an artificial intelligence (AI) assessment system that will provide immediate personalized feedback ...

  7. Early Reading Diagnastic Profiler

    SBC: Analytic Measures Incorporated            Topic: 91990020R0006

    In a prior SBIR project (EDIES17C0030), the small business developed Moby.Read, a tablet-based speech recognition app that grade school students use to self-administer oral-reading fluency assessments. In this project, the team will develop a new prototype component to extract more diagnostic detail on reading difficulties as students read passages. The Phase I prototype will include a natural lan ...
