The Kognity advantage

A vetted, high quality curriculum for generations of future scientists.

Kognity is not your ordinary publisher of instructional materials. With 10 years of expertise and a network of national Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) experts, we are combining the best of pedagogy and technology to prepare high school students for successful careers in STEM and beyond.

Never before has our world been so complex and scientific literacy is critical to making sense of it all […] That’s why all students – regardless of whether they pursue college or STEM careers – should have access to a high-quality K-12 science education.

High quality instructional materials make a difference because:

They save teachers valuable time.

Teachers have reported spending up to 12 hours per week sourcing or creating instructional materials, often from unvetted sources.

Removing this burden frees up teacher time for more impactful interactions with students.

They promote equitable learning.

Some students are disproportionately impacted by the lack of high quality instructional materials that are grade-appropriate.

Implementing a vetted, standards-aligned curriculum evens the playing field for all students.

The payoff is bigger than the cost.

While cost isn’t necessarily correlated with quality, the payoff from high-quality curriculum can far outweigh the expense.

Investing in higher quality materials today decreases remediation costs tomorrow.

  • When teachers have access to high-quality, aligned instructional materials, it makes a difference in their classroom practice and the instruction students receive.

  • Improving the quality of curriculum is 40x more cost-effective than class-size reduction.

    Why Materials Matter, EdReports
  • [...] "grade-level mastery" doesn’t mean students must have read a particular list of books. It means they have had the chance to practice a core set of grade-level-appropriate competencies for processing information, thinking critically about texts, and solving problems using evidence. Those are essential skills that can make the difference between graduating ready for college or the workplace, or not.

  • I would recommend Kognity because kids learn more when they’re connected, when they learn what the phenomena are, when they’re given space to talk about it, and when they’re given frequent assessment. All of that leads to better outcomes for students.
