findingQED has beta-tested the platform with over 800 students engaging scenarios in business strategy (in the University of Washington MBA program) and scientific thinking (in Lone Star College's biology course). Both institutions also incorporated common-knowledge scenarios as a means to introduce learners to the platform and to enable the development and exercise of higher-order thinking skills without requiring any domain-specific knowledge or expertise. 

All the problem scenarios have been co-developed by findingQED and instructors.

Instructor and learner feedback alike have been consistent about the ability of these scenarios to:

  • captivate and motivate, 
  • trigger curiosity, 
  • develop higher-order thinking skills and processes, 
  • learn and apply domain-specific subject matter, 
  • empower self-development and independent learning, 
  • generate productive group discussions, and 
  • provide highly useful descriptive feedback and assessment metrics.

Assessment metrics have been a powerful tool, providing instructors with insightful data-based input that have helped to focus discussions and pace the exercise of specific thinking skills and the application of particular domain topics.
