Knowledge Factor Launches Gap Finder Assessment Tool

New Feature Saves Training Resources by Better Streamlining Learning Efforts

Boulder, Colo. (May 25, 2016) – Knowledge Factor, Inc., developer of Amplifire – a learning software that is used by category leaders including Pearson, CompTIA, The Princeton Review, Barbri and the world’s largest consulting firm – today launched its Gap Finder assessment. The Gap Finder assesses a user’s base knowledge and identifies strengths and deficiencies to better inform subsequent training or study sessions, maximizing time and budget resources for organizations and individual learners alike.

Amplifire’s Gap Finder assessment asks questions on key topics from a larger learning, training or test preparation program. Upon completion, Gap Finder delivers a summary of the learner’s knowledge against each topic, indicating where knowledge is strong, average or weak.

For organizations, this summary provides a preliminary risk diagnostic, identifies specific knowledge gaps within workforces, and ultimately saves training resources by allowing learners to “test out” of content and topics they already know. For individual learners, such as those using Gap Finder as a pre-exam or pre-certification prep tool, this summary provides an informed jumping off point from which they can begin their study.

“We expect Gap Finder to have a significant impact on the way organizations evaluate knowledge, identify topics to be trained and refine their training approach toward the ‘prior knowledge base’ of their workforce,” said Bob Burgin, CEO of Knowledge Factor. “This new tool will empower organizations and individuals to focus on the topics that need the most review, and not waste valuable resources on those that are already well-understood – saving both time and budget.”

Since 2001, Knowledge Factor has collaborated with leading clinical psychologists and neurobiologists to develop Amplifire – the world’s most advanced education and learning platform. The software leverages 21 science-based learning techniques that are proven to trigger learning and improve knowledge retention and recall. As a result, Amplifire delivers unprecedented learning and memory results, such as a 47 percent increase in pass rates, a 30 percent increase in grades, and a 50 percent reduction in study times with up to 90 percent knowledge retention after 12 months (versus 10 percent after two weeks with traditional learning methodologies).
