CMU working to close the “opportunity gap” for students

A pair of separate, but complementary, research projects led by Carnegie Mellon University will use cutting-edge research in motivation, thinking, culturally affirming teaching and human-computer interaction to galvanize a community of teachers, mentors and parents around improving math achievement. These projects aim to support schools that serve black, Latinx and low-income students, and are supported by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The research includes:

  • Psychological and Motivational Factors in Middle School Math and
  • AI and Mentoring to Bridge Opportunity Gaps in Urban School
