The Latino Education Institute of Worcester State
The Latino Education Institute (LEI), a Worcester-based nonprofit dedicated to improving the social and academic wellbeing of Latino youth and families, sought to streamline its student evaluations by moving from pen-and-paper to an online platform. ASSISTments, an online educational platform run by WPI, looked to expand its global presence beyond the United States. This MQP addressed both issues at once by internationalizing ASSISTments and determining whether it was the optimal service for digitizing LEI’s evaluations. I achieved my goal by identifying software requirements, modifying source code, analyzing competitors, and conducting student pilot programs. In the end, I provided ASSISTments with translation capabilities and helped LEI transition to an appropriate means of digitization.
