Converge™

Train Instructors to assess more consistently, fairly, and with more depth.

How do institutions keep their qualitative assessments consistent, unbiased, and meaningful across multiple instructors, sections, classes and even across sites?

We believe that in order to teach complex skills effectively, you have to train the instructor on how to assess these skills.

Converge is our digital platform that enables inter-rater reliability through a process that allows any diverse group to become more consistent with how they score or give feedback. Our system identifies how much divergence a group of people have evaluating the same piece of work with the same rubric, and gives scorers the tools to discuss and reconcile those differences, so that they can all score with fairness, consistency, and justification.

Currently, Finetune is partnering with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to help 5,000 teachers using the Summit Learning Curriculum achieve inter-rater reliability across more than 400 schools.
