Abu Dhabi, UAE  – Thousands of teachers in the United Arab Emirates and the United States will now have access to powerful data to inform math instruction as the result of a new partnership between the global K-12 education technology company Alef Education and MetaMetrics®. The Alef Platform, which leverages artificial intelligence, will now report MetaMetrics’ Quantile® measures from its math diagnostic assessments, providing teachers with a measure of ability to guide future learning.

The Quantile® Framework for Mathematics provides a scientific approach for matching students with ability-appropriate resources. Quantile measures help differentiate instruction and monitor growth in mathematics.

“At Alef Education, we always seek to make data and insight immediately applicable in the classroom,” said Joe El Sebaaly, Chief Product Officer. “We are proud to partner with MetaMetrics as we continue to make our goal a reality for students and the educators who work to support them every day. With the data that will be generated through our collaboration with MetaMetrics, we can accelerate math learning.”

Students from more than 400 United Arab Emirates public schools, serving 150,000 students, learn using Alef Education’s personalized learning platform.

“At MetaMetrics, we share Alef Education’s commitment to providing educators and students with actionable data for improving learning for all students. By reporting our Quantile measures from its platform, Alef Education is expanding the ways its assessments are used to accelerate student growth in mathematics,” said Malbert Smith, CEO and co-founder, MetaMetrics. “We are excited about continued global growth of the use of our universal scale for measuring math ability through this new partnership.”
