Single support Study
Dr. Neil Heffernan introduces the study
Who can participate
We are seeking math education faculty to write the best possible hints/explanations for math problems. Benefits include stipends, prize, and publication opportunities.
What is the study about
Many students struggle with math learning. ASSISTments is a free online math learning platform supporting millions of students. Teachers use the platform to assign students math problems from popular open educational resources such as Kendall Hunt Illustrative Mathematics and EngageNY/Eureka Math. ASSISTments is dedicated to helping students work independently on math problems by providing support in the form of hints and explanations.
Develop: We will send you a problem set of about 10 math problems in the content area you choose and then you will spend 1 to 2 hours writing hints or explanations for the problems following standard educational practices.
Benefits for Participation
$100 stipend for each problem set that is deployed. The team at ASSISTments will monitor for quality control.
