By 2023, more than 20,000 students will receive Lexile reading scores from ClouBot assessments
DURHAM, NC and Seoul, South Korea, May 3, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — ClouBota Korean edtech company, is partnered with MetaMetrics® to accelerate English language learning for thousands of students in the Republic of Korea. By 2023, more than 20,000 students will receive MetaMetrics. Lexile® Measures from assessments in ClouBot’s AI Tutor, a powerful learning tool that teaches English to students. The ClouBot AI Tutor™ guides lessons, answers questions, and corrects grammar and pronunciation errors in real time, just like a teacher sitting next to a student.
The new ratings reporting Lexile measures will be implemented in the DYB Choisun language schools. DYB Choisun is a private English language institute dedicated to teaching all aspects of English to elementary and junior high school students. Students learn from both Koreans and native speakers in intensive TOEFL/KSAT-based courses that include reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
“Alongside direct speaking and listening, reading is the most important indirect approach to learning a language,” he said SukHo song, CEO, ClouBot. “Students improve their reading ability by using Lexile measurements to target their reading level and build skills. Lexile measurements, determined by these assessments, are a globally recognized measure of reading ability.”
The Lexile Framework for Reading places both student and instructional materials on the same scale to allocate resources to the learner at their ability level. When students receive Lexile measurements from an assessment, their test results become more actionable, allowing ClouBot’s AI tutor to link the assessment to the lesson.
“We are excited to partner with ClouBot to bring Lexile results to DYB Choisun Language Schools students so they can improve their English skills,” he said Malbert Schmidt, CEO and co-founder of MetaMetrics. “ClouBot is an example of the growing number of companies around the world that continue to adopt our efforts to accelerate learning for students of all ages.”
About DYB Choisun Language Schools
DYB – Do Your Best – is an English academy with several campuses in and around Seoul. Within each branch there are elementary and middle school levels, each with different grades – grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 or grades M1, M2 and M3 (7, 8 and 9). Song Oh Hyunthe founder of DYB, is responsible for running the company and the English curriculum.
The curriculum is based on the ‘Circular System’ which encompasses all aspects of the English language; writing, speaking, reading and listening. Tuition is given by Korean and non-Korean staff, with the former primarily responsible for reading and listening and the latter for speaking and writing. In each class there are usually 4 levels of English and sometimes a fifth highest level. Books and teaching materials vary by level to ensure students are challenged but not beyond their ability. Korean teachers will handle most of the test items, and native (English-speaking) teachers will be involved in more creative and engaging tasks.
DYB began 26 years ago in a small classroom of six students and one teacher and has grown to nearly 30,000 students today. Lesson creation is shared in DYB, teachers are responsible for creating just one or two lessons and then uploading them to a shared DYB DropBox account. Teachers can then access pre-made lessons for their other classes while sharing their own.
