New Product Launch: SOI Memory Handbook

M = My   

E = Everyday   

M = Memory  

O = Often   

R =  Refuses to   

Y = Yield Information

Does this definition of MEMORY sound familiar?  Do you forget why you walked into a room? Where you left your car keys? A neighbor or friend’s name?

Memory is a major concern for many people. It doesn’t matter if you are 8 or 80; we all need memory training to keep our brain sharp.  Visual and auditory memory is the backbone of school and career advancement. Dr. Mary Meeker recognized this deficiency back in 1977 when she designed and published the Memory Handbooks I & II.

Today we have incorporated those two brain training exercise books into one: the SOI Memory Handbook. It works to improve all areas of memory, including: figural, spatial, place, symbolic, and verbal. Using this handbook will increase your ability to Continue reading “New Product Launch: SOI Memory Handbook”

Announcement: New Online Learning Abilities Tests

In 2010, Dr. Robert Meeker upgraded and integrated 50 years of experience into two new SOI tests. The ALA (Advanced Learning Abilities) and PLA (Primary Learning Abilities) tests were originally designed for our colleagues in other countries, but the need for an online version of SOI testing was another driving force behind the project. The ALA and PLA tests are currently in paper-pencil format and will be available online in September 2016.

To jump straight to our website for details on online testing, click here!

GENERAL INFORMATION

The addition of Critical Thinking subtests within the ALA adds value for the career-oriented client.

SOI continues to offer paper-pencil versions of both tests as a means of observing the student taking the test. Group testing is often more practical using the written forms, as well.

Students who struggle with concentration or anxiety issues find that the computer versions of the tests have allowed them to focus and relax during the test-taking process.

The ALA and PLA continue to Continue reading “Announcement: New Online Learning Abilities Tests”

SOI Certified Learning Annual Report: 2015-2016

Blog GraphCertified Learning teaches each student individually. It employs a tutorial model of instruction designed for classroom-size groups. It covers the basic curriculum – reading, math, and science concepts – for the primary grades.

It also teaches foundational abilities and skills that are necessary (but often lacking) for learning the content curriculum. The overall goal is to optimally prepare each student for the transition to the more advanced curriculum of the middle grades.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Out of every 100 lessons assigned, 98 were completed and mastered in the pass-fail tests. Only 2% of the assigned lessons were not mastered. The 98% that were mastered by all students represents an average of 75 lessons – the equivalent of a full year’s curriculum – for each of the participating students.

This is just a brief introduction of all that is included in this year’s report. Please view the full report for details on the 2015-2016 results. You will be amazed at what these students have accomplished!
