I am excited about supporting teachers with data they can use to improve instruction. It is important to me that teachers set the pace and determine what content they give their students and it is key that students get immediate feedback as they work. My husband Neil Heffernan and I created ASSISTments to support teachers in doing this. We have just founded The ASSISTments Foundation to support the whole project.
