Mindprint Learning Earns 2016 Academics' Choice Award for Excellence
Mindprint has been honored with an Academics' Choice Award, reserved only for the best mind-building media. Mindprint recently released a free personalized learning toolbox for consumers and will offer a cognitive screener for schools this fall.
"It's gratifying to see Mindprint getting the recognition we believe it deserves," said Nancy Weinstein, Chief Executive Officer of Mindprint Learning. "Validation from the thought-leaders at Academics' Choice means we're making a difference and improving learning outcomes."
Parents, tutors and schools use Mindprint to solve the problem of objectively identifying how students learn with a valid, online cognitive assessment. Weinstein continued, "While educators are comfortable providing differentiated instruction to students when they know why a student is struggling, they often cannot identify the underlying learning strengths and needs through observation. Standardized tests of academic achievement do not measure these skills. Once a Mindprint identifies how each child learns, a learning profile maps the relevant learning strategies and educational resources appropriate for each child."
One of the Academics' Choice Awards Reviewers of Mindprint commented, "It is personalized to the individual based on the assessment. As a parent & teacher, I think Mindprint would be helpful to understanding my own children and their strengths. It would be amazing to have this for each of my classroom students at the beginning of the year in addition to their IEP, ELLP, ALP information."
Mindprint recently released a free version of its personalized learning toolbox, enabling parents and educators to search thousands of learning strategies and teacher-reviewed resources by academic subject, cognitive skill, and interest in providing differentiated instruction at the click of a button. "We were delighted to make this tool freely available," concluded Weinstein. "In the fall we will introduce a universal cognitive screener designed and priced for general education that has the potential to reshape personalized learning for all students. That's what we're about at Mindprint."

About Mindprint Learning
Mindprint Learning's new platform provides a significant enhancement to existing personalized learning solutions for the general education classroom. The Mindprint assessment analyzes each child's strengths and weaknesses on the underlying skills required to process and remember new information. This analysis drives links to specific instruction and supplementary resources for each learner. Cognitive assessments have been the most reliable way to understand how a child learns, as opposed to what they know, for over a century. We enable educators to reap the benefits of the latest research on early intervention, metacognition, and neuroscience to help all students learn more successfully.
