Research shows that learning improves when students think or talk about new concepts. ORION fosters meaningful interaction around the course material. Students take responsibility for their learning and collaborate around the course material. And, educators can create small groups simply by emailing a cohort of students that have similar needs directly from a proficiency report.
It’s no longer enough to evaluate students for a final grade. Data is needed to inform teaching decisions. ORION helps educators measure students’ engagement and proficiency throughout the course so that they can easily assess how things are going at any point in time. This is essential for continuous improvement.
