Product Review of Mindprint Learning
Penn Medicine’s lab on Brain Behavior developed a website that will give any learner of any age a personalized learning profile. Mindprint Learning consists of a cognitive test of over 10 skills for a learner to complete. The test is then evaluated to generate feedback and tools that will best help that learner learn. The test is only one hour long and covers executive functions, complex reasoning, memory, and speed. This can be used for school districts or for homeschools.
What Users Love About the App
“We use this product for all of our students, all of whom are dyslexic, to help tease apart the underlying cognitive needs and allow the teachers to apply appropriate strategies to support each individual student’s learning needs. The three different levels of data reporting are extremely useful, as they can be used for teachers to learn more about their students, speak with parents succinctly, and pull resources for support easily.”
“As a district administrator, I used this tool with my teachers to help them to reflect on their own variability and their unique mix of strengths of areas that don’t come as easily. The feedback from the teachers was exceptional and this will build the foundation to use this tool with our students.”
“This is a screening tool to check for executive functioning skills deficits as well as other learning deficits. The student, using a computer with an internet connection, completes several tasks (which take about 45 minutes total) which detect processing speed, visual memory, verbal memory, attention and many sub-skills related to learning.”
“My use of the results of this assessment is to have each student look at one strength and one weakness, learning more about that aspect of learning (using the well-written description on the Mindprint Learning website), and then give a report to the rest of the class on what they learned. It is incredibly empowering for struggling students to realize that there is a name for the way certain processes work and that they have strengths as well as weaknesses.”
“Great tool for teacher self-reflection! As an administrator, this served my role well. I look forward to supporting my teachers as they use it with students.”
