Using Artificial Intelligence to Close the Achievement Gap

Achievement gaps occur when one group of students (such as students grouped by race/ethnicity, gender) outperforms another group and the difference in average scores for the two groups is statistically significant. The achievement gap between students who come from different socio-economic backgrounds is a pervasive problem in education. Disparities in achievements between high and low socio-economic groups can be observed in children as young as 3 years and mostly stay with them for their lifetime. With the achievement gap established at a very early age, the resulting lack of achievement only decreases the likelihood of these children ever reaching the same levels of achievements as their more privileged peers. Well-designed AI solutions can help to resolve the achievement gaps that exist between various groups of students.
