<p></p><p>ASSISTments is a free, university-based platform. Each day, teachers assign problems to thousands of students (currently 50,000 students) through problem sets aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Randomized controlled experiments are often embedded in these problem sets to evaluate the efficacy of learning interventions. Heffernan has been funded by the NSF to conduct certain types of research using ASSISTments (i.e., spacing studies). Seventeen peer-reviewed publications have resulted from controlled experiments conducted within ASSISTments. </p><br><p></p>
