Cerego’s new Readiness Score™ lets you see in real time what somebody actually knows.
How Readiness is different from test scores
Memories can fade and change within hours, quickly rendering traditional metrics like a test score outdated. Because test scores only reflect a single moment in time, they also can be affected by factors such as anxiety or luck, or even be gamed. Perhaps most importantly, a test score cannot distinguish between memorization that quickly fades after the exam, and lasting, applicable knowledge.
Cerego’s patented technology solves these problems through the application of cognitive science and machine learning, telling you exactly how likely it is that a learner could recall a concept they are studying, right now. If a learner shows a Readiness Score of 90, Cerego estimates that the learner can remember 90% of the concepts they have learned in Cerego.
Cerego’s Readiness Score can also do things a one-time test can’t, such as:
- Tell you which employees, right now, can apply critical safety protocols
- Give you a real-time picture of gaps in student knowledge to address
- Tell a learner preparing for a high stakes exam exactly how ready they are
Cerego’s Readiness Score in action
Take, for example, students at New York University’s College of Dentistry where Cerego is in use to build strong recall to take the NBDE or National Board Dental Examination. After starting using Cerego, NYU has gone from an 80% pass rate to a 99.8% pass rate. As a result of Cerego being able to calculate how well they know each item they are studying, Cerego can produce a Readiness Score at both the assignment and course level. Below we see how ‘ready’ right now, today, an NYU student is from the content they have studied in Cerego.
So, if an NYU College of Dentistry professor were to ask the student any questions from the content they studied in Clinical Endodontics, Cerego’s Readiness Score predicts that the student would successfully remember 93% of the concepts covered in the unit. For Lasers in Endodontology, which the student is also studying, the Readiness Score is lower at 60. The student and the instructor can see that this is because the student’s memory for Pulp Capping has faded, and so the student can focus on reviewing that topic in Cerego to increase their Readiness for the board exam.
