A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11862041B2) outlines a computer-implemented method that involves a computing platform generating control interface actions for observers to assess and prescribe resources for target students. The method includes providing an observation interface for observers to input assessment data based on various criteria, prescribing resources based on the assessment, and updating the interface with recommended electronic instructional resources. The system also allows for assigning resources to students, monitoring completion, and generating reports on assignment status. Additionally, the method includes a multi-dimensional response item model engine to provide alerts and export data externally.

Furthermore, the patent describes a student-growth computing system that includes an observation engine, assessment engine, mastery-maker engine, and assignment engine to facilitate personalized learning for students. The system collects and stores mapping information on student users, determines mastery designations, and assigns tasks and practice tests to help students master subjects of interest. The assignment engine designates tasks and resources to students based on predefined parameters and provides electronic resources from a media-distribution server. The system aims to enhance student learning by providing personalized resources and monitoring progress through various assessment criteria and tools.
