Improving student retention through adaptive online learning with deep learner insights, better intervention, and cognitive science principles for a better learning experience & longer lasting memory.
A 2017 study evaluated the effect of Amplifire on simulated bar exam scores, but avoided two problems by comparing performance across exam topics within each learner. Topics on which a student used Amplifire were compared to topics on which that same student didn’t. This study thus controlled for most third-variable issues that undermine causality (e.g., student ability, motivation, study habits).
The reason Amplifire can deliver significant outcomes is because the platform is built on specific discoveries in brain science that have revealed the most effective techniques for learning rapidly and retaining the information longer. The platform uses 14 cognitive triggers such as confidence-based questioning, spacing, interleaving, priming, feedback with a delay, and many others. You can read more about them here.
Amplifire increased the pass rate on the restaurant food safety exam by 18% while reducing the failure rate by 34%.
With Amplifire, student MCAT scores moved from the 90th to the 95th percentile. Over 58,000 learners have prepped for the MCAT with Amplifire. Students using Amplifire have answered 53,192,000 questions. Students have spent more than 900,000 hours of learning in Amplifire
A large medical board evaluated Amplifire against the self-paced learning modules the board uses for physicians to maintain their certification. The basis of comparison was the ability of each company’s software to improve knowledge in two medical specialties.
