Project Description

M-Powering Teachers (MPT) uses natural language processing to analyze recordings of mathematics teaching for information on student mathematical reasoning, teacher-student mathematical language, and equity-centered classroom practices. Teachers use the MPT tool to receive feedback on their teaching, and researchers can use it to replace or augment human scoring, allowing learning designs to scale more quickly and efficiently.
