is a free web-based tutoring program for grades 2 to high school, principally with content for mathematics aligned to the Common Core standards. The program was developed by Professor Neil Heffernan at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Massachusetts and numerous colleagues (e.g., at Carnegie Mellon and WPI students, faculty and staff as well as many cooperating teachers) with funding and support from a variety of sources, including grants from the US Department of Education and the National Science Foundation. The word “ASSISTments” blends tutoring assistance with assessment reporting to teachers. This gives teachers fine grained reporting on skills that the system tracks. The developers identified skills using standards from many states, and their observations of many state assessments. As a formative assessment tool, math teachers assign problem sets to their students to do on the computer, and students are tutored on the items they get wrong. Teachers log on to the system and study detailed reports about their students’ difficulties and strengths. Teachers can use content developed at WPI or write their own content. Numerous schools in the US are taking advantage of ASSISTments for their students.
