Assessment Prescription Method (APM)
What is 2 sigma improvement?
The 2 Sigma Problem: In 1984, Benjamin Bloom discovered a method for drastically improving educational efficiency, that improved results by a factor of two standard deviations (two sigma). This is known as Bloom's 2 Sigma Problem.
Bloom's method means that the “average” student within a given class could now perform better than 49 out of every 50 students within a traditional classroom setting.
What was his secret sauce?
It is the combination of two education approaches: mastery learning and personalized instruction.
Our Assessment-Prescription Method (APM) solves Bloom's 2 sigma problem by being the most effective application/retention system.
