With peer-normed analytics, you’ll know how your students compare – not only to their peers but to the entire Piqosity community.
We dynamically peer-norm every question¹, so you know exactly how difficult a question is based on how real students are answering it.
Piqosity also shows you a variety of performance metrics, including improvement over time, pace, and weakest areas.
¹As of fall 2022, we’re still in the process of norming our new Math and English courses.
Piqosity Virtual Tutor
Piqosity Virtual Tutor (PVT) is the ultimate teacher’s assistant, which guides students through Piqosity’s lessons and assessments at their own pace and level.
Like a personalized playlist for every student, PVT will individualize a course’s curriculum to each student’s unique goals and proficiency levels.
With PVT students will always be studying the correct material and working the right level of assessment for them.
Piqosity Virtual Tutor (PVT)¹ continuously measures student progress in the current and in pre-requisite topics.
When PVT identifies a student consistently underperforming, it automatically makes the connection and recommends remediation.
Students remediate a topic by studying the relevant lesson and working associated practice questions to demonstrate proficiency.
¹Intelligent Remediation launches in fall of 2023 with PVT 2.0.
Every Piqosity course contains 3 unique types of content—lessons, practice questions, and full-length tests or units.
Every topic is explained in an intuitive text or video-based lessons, including multiple variations and styles to fit each student’s needs.

Test prep courses provide up to 12 full-length practice tests; math courses contain 4 unit exams; and English courses offer at least 2 novel walk-throughs.

Can ESSER or EANS funds be used to buy Piqosity?Shelby Joe2023-04-19T16:29:42-05:00
Yes, in our experience most public and private schools can use federal, pandemic relief funds to pay for Piqosity student licenses. The specific rules of using ESSER and EANS funds vary by state. However, Piqosity generally qualifies since it’s a software solution specifically designed to measure and mitigate learning loss in K12 math and English.
No, Piqosity is purely an education technology (and publishing) company. However, to offer a competitive product we sometimes bundle a tutor consultation and/or 1-hour of private tutoring with select packages. These services are provided by local tutors and teachers. If you are a local educator, we invite you to register for our Educator Referral Network at no-charge.
Who writes Piqosity’s content?Shelby Joe2023-04-19T16:47:39-05:00
