Over 25 years of educational research backs UR TURN technology. Our decision support engine guides students and parents along the educational pathway, one milestone at a time. When off course, we provide research-based guidance toward academic success.
Every fall 4 millions students enter the 9th grade. By the time these same students reach the end of 12th grade about 25% will have dropped out. One million American youth! Of the remaining students, only half will go on to any form of post-secondary education beyond high school. Research strongly indicates that without at least a high school diploma, an individual will not make a living wage in the U. S.
The UR TURN mission is simple. Provide insight and experience drawn from years of research that students, parents, and counselors can use to keep students on track for high school graduation and beyond. If a student gets off track, our smart advising tool provides access to research-backed interventions designed to get students back on a pathway to success. Our tools and experience transform the traditional electronic grade-book experience into a powerful, data-driven, proactive smart-advisor framework for families and educators.
