Boost your SAT/ACT scores faster using neuroscience.

Mindprint Learning Overview:

It takes a cognitive test to beat a cognitive test! The MindPrint Learning Assessment is the world’s first online cognitive test that accurately measures the skills you need to succeed on the ACT and SAT. Developed by neuroscientists at the University of Pennsylvania and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), this one-hour online test will profile 10 core cognitive skills across four core domains of speed, executive functions, complex reasoning and memory. Predictive algorithms based on your full capabilities instead of historical results will help you focus on areas for highest potential point gains rather than indiscriminate prep. The question styles are similar enough to the ACT/SAT that most of the strategies are relevant. The Verbal Reasoning assessment even mirrors a section of the SSAT, giving you the perfect opportunity to boost your score using the latest from neuroscience!

Frequently Asked Questions

Cognitive skills identify how you learn best. Unlike other assessments, MindPrint Learning identifies how you best understand and recall information. In contrast, tests of academic skills or achievement are more of a test of what you know.

Most schools never test cognitive skills because it has historically been too time-consuming and expensive. However, an accurate understanding of one’s learning strengths and needs can be key to more efficient and enjoyable learning. This is true for all students, particularly once they reach middle and high school.

MindPrint Learning evaluates 10 core cognitive skills across four key domains:

Reasoning: Your ability to make sense of what you read, hear or see. Your ability to make connections to previous learned knowledge.

  • Fact: Students’ visual reasoning skills are independent of socio-economic background.

Memory: Your ability to remember what you read or hear. 

  • Fact: Students can have one memory skill significantly stronger than the other.

Executive Functions: Your ability to sustain focus and follow through on multi-step tasks. 

  • Fact: Chronic stress common in high-poverty communities can have a significant negative impact on executive functions.

Processing : Your ability to accurately and efficiently respond to information. 

  • Fact: Too fast or too slow processing can easily be mistaken for a lack of understanding.

MindPrint Learning’s assessment was developed by neuroscientists in the Brain Behavior Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania in collaboration with the National Institute of Mental Health. It has been tested in over 100,000 participants worldwide, including more than 10,000 children and 50,000 members of the armed services.

The computerized, adaptive assessment measures each student’s learning strengths and needs on 10 skills across four core domains of speed, executive functions, complex reasoning and memory. Unlike achievement tests, there are no reading passages or math computations. Students of all ages who take the MindPrint Learning Assessment usually describe it as a series of puzzles and often describe it as “actually quite fun.”

Every student receives an individualized learner profile which explains the student’s competencies across the 10 skills. The skills are mapped to each academic subject to gain a much clearer picture of why some subjects might come easily while others require more effort.

The learner profile is part of the student’s broader personalized learning plan. The personalized learning plan includes easy-to-follow instructional and study strategies for school and home use.

No.

MindPrint Learning is a curriculum supplement and enables every teacher to improve instructional practices. MindPrint Learning is entirely curriculum and achievement test agnostic. MindPrint Learning works with your existing curriculum and assessment solution.

Yes.

MindPrint Learning can integrate with your standardized test scores to identify underperformers, as well as identify recommendations for test-taking skills to improve performance. MindPrint Learning can be used for high-stakes tests such as the SAT and ACT. MindPrint Learning identifies which test format might be more favourable and provides guidance on how to optimize scores by test subject. With MindPrint Learning, students learn how to prioritize study time to get the “biggest bang for the buck”. Also, the questions are similar enough that most of the strategies are relevant. The Verbal Reasoning assessment even mirrors a section of the SSAT. We are confident that in terms of curating learning strategies for each student, MindPrint Learning should be a very effective tool.
