Evidence of Engagement with Speak Agent

Two surveys of nearly 2,500 middle school students in 2021 and 2022 found high engagement with Speak Agent's Math+Language and Science+Language programs:

  • 80% of students agreed or strongly agreed that they enjoy Speak Agent.
  • 86% of students agreed or strongly agreed that Speak Agent helps them learn math.
  • 70% of students stated that they learn "more" or "much more" using Speak Agent than other tools.

N= 2,497 math and science  students in grades 6 to 8. Data were collected from March 23, 2021 to May 8, 2022 by Prince George's County Public Schools, Maryland.

What math and science teachers are saying:

"My kids love it! They see it as a game, but they are still learning!"

"For students who are behind academically...they get really engaged and don't want to stop!"

"They are learning and sharing, telling stories and facts."

"They're asking more questions, like what does a volcanic eruption mean..."

Our reflections:

As the saying goes, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” We did not expect students to take this so literally! One student actually made a model volcano out of clay at home and brought it to class after engaging with one of our science lessons! This reflects a truly deep connection with the content. Speak Agent enables this because it fits the classroom curriculum and ties directly into daily classwork and discourse.
