Error Diagnostics: ACTIVATE™ cognitive training programs recognize 40 different types of errors. Specific types of errors are then related to each of 8 core cognitive capacities. These assessments are already proven to identify children with special needs or special talents before teachers were fully aware of either. Compared to other quantitative assessments, the ACTIVATE™ reports have the advantage of drawing on thousands of responses over many different days and months, making them less susceptible to the effects of temporary periods of stress, illness, poor sleep, etc. ACTIVATE™ reports allow for comprehensive assessment of student cognition before children learn to read.
In-Game Corrective Messaging: When a child makes a specific type of error above a criterion frequency, the ACTIVATE™ cognitive training programs automatically provide a corrective strategy message to the child and an example of how to do the problem correctly. In addition, for some errors, the program also makes a temporary change in the way the stimulus or problem is presented so as to make it easier to see, understand of do correctly. These performance aids are phased in and out depending on the child’s performance.
A Learning Database: ACTIVATE™ brain training tools uses student data for continuous improvement of our programs. Reports display performance in terms of percentile rankings comparing student users to other users their age and drawing from a continually growing database.
