Knowledge Factor Launches New Version of Amplifire Software Fine-Tuned for Greater Efficacy and User Engagement

Boulder, Colo. (June 6, 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 the latest version of its revolutionary application, complete with new features designed to improve user experience, efficacy and engagement.

“Our goal is to take practical insights from our users and clients and apply them in a way that is consistent with the science of learning and memory,” said Bob Burgin, CEO of Knowledge Factor. “While it is often difficult to accomplish this because the science is complex and often counterintiuive to the traditional learning, this latest version of Amplifire incorporates new features that are important to our community while expanding on our hallmark of science and learning efficacy.”

Based on user feedback, testing and focus group studies, the latest Amplifire release includes two significant features that provide learners greater control over their learning experience and study options:

• The optional-view Learner Heads Up Display shows real-time learning progress, including an overview of module performance against each question, an estimate of time remaining to completion and an average confidence barometer. Learners can immediately apply this feedback as they work through the course, and as a result, experience much higher engagement and learning efficacy.

• The new Smart Refresh option, available upon completion of a module, offers users a smarter, more efficient way to study. This feature allows users to efficiently “refresh” their knowledge by only reviewing questions they answered incorrectly or with doubt, and eliminating questions that they knew well from the start. As a result, users are able to quickly and effectively maintain a high level of subject matter mastery. This feature is derived from big data analysis of more than 600,000,000 learner iterations that demonstrates up to a 30 percent knowledge decay in newly remediated after just three months. Amplifire’s new Smart Refresh is targeted specifically at forestalling this decay by offering users fast a recharge of those concepts that are the hardest to retain.

Additionally, the latest Amplifire release offers a variety of UI adjustments for greater ease-of-use including revised navigation, helpful visuals and easier access to key learning and study tools.

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).
