"The student who took ResearchReady for a spin had positive things to say about the product: ‘I found this website extremely helpful. One thing I enjoyed was that it was very easy to use and not complicated to figure out. I like how characters were simple and that there was a storyline to follow . . . this kept it interesting."


— Shannon Miller, Librarian, Van Meter School District

Students

Conduct Effective, Ethical Research

Responsible, Confident Researching

Students become informed, educated scholars and citizens who know how to access and use information successfully. They learn to do more than just find the facts, but to find relevant information and analyze it critically.

Entertaining Storyline

Learning research skills may not always be the most fascinating activity for students. Scott the student and Bubo the owl - ResearchReady’s mascots and guides - provide context and an engaging storyline to keep students focused and entertained. We also have an option with two students, Scott and Lucy, if that is what you think your students will prefer.

"Civ classes are in here today to do [the course] Internet 101. While some students are whiny, most are realizing the gaps and their previous training, and we certainly see gaps when we look at the Student Progress screens."
