Aaron’s Statement on AI:
As a former teacher/testing administrator and current researcher, I see the potential for AI to rewire schools’ relationship with assessment and accountability, winning back time for instruction, trust in results, and opening new windows onto student skills. At the same time, I see that potential passing us by if teachers, education leadership, communities, and students are not engaged as partners from the start, designing AI tools for how real classrooms work and towards impacts that matter.

Nancy’s Statement on AI:
Before I met Inq-ITS, and through them AI, I was floundering in the dark. I was trying to grade hundreds of lab reports, trying to determine who understood what, how to intervene when necessary, and how to help my students think like scientists. That wasn’t even taking the quality of the writing into consideration. Now, thanks to Inq-ITS and their masterful use of AI, I can be a teacher again. I can intervene at the perfect time. I can help students exactly when they need it with the intervention that they need. I have become a mind reader. Most importantly, my students are thinking like scientists.
