Roschelle, J., Bhanot, R. T., Patton, C., & Gallagher, L. (2015). Strength of Research for Reasoning Mind. Menlo Park, CA: SRI International.
SRI Education reviewed a series of studies about Reasoning Mind, from 2003 to 2014. We found strong evidence supporting the quality of product design relative to design characteristics that have been shown to be empirically important in prior research with other blended learning products. With regard to student and teacher attitudes, it is clear that students and teachers like using Reasoning Mind to learn mathematics and find the Genie character particularly compelling. Student engagement, observed in both behaviors and affect, also showed higher levels of concentration and on-task activity, underscoring the potential of Reasoning Mind as an online learning system that addresses these important predictors of student learning.
