InQuizitive Improves Quiz Scores Nearly A Letter Grade In First Study.


Click here for the summary report.
In Spring 2016, Norton partnered with Dustin Tingley, Vice Provost for Advances in Learning Research Group at Harvard, to assess the impact of InQuizitive on student learning. Students and instructors at ten institutions across the country participated in the study.


In a within subject experimental design, student performance increased nearly a letter grade on summative quizzes. Key findings include:

  • Student performance increased by an average of 8.4 points on summative quizzes when students were first asked to complete an InQuizitive activity before taking the quiz.
  • The increase in student performance was even greater (13.1 points) when students were also being assigned InQuizitive as part of their course grade.
  • Struggling students (students whose initial quiz scores were lowest) saw the greatest performance increase after completing an InQuizitive activity.

InQuizitive wins IMS Global Application Challenge.

Every year, the IMS Global Learning Consortium hosts its Ed Tech Application Challenge, inviting education and for-profit institutions to submit their latest and greatest education technology in a friendly but competitive competition.



This year, InQuizitive stole the show, placing in two different categories. InQuizitive won top honors in the Best Overall LTI Implementation category for its use of learning tools interoperability (LTI), the IMS's open standard for integrating learning tools with on-campus systems (Blackboard, Canvas, etc.). InQuizitive placed second in the Best App By A Non-Institutional Developer category, dedicated to education technology from the for-profit sector.



Since its launch in Fall 2015, students at 400 schools have answered over forty-five million InQuizitive quiz questions.
