Raytheon BBN Technologies is one of Raytheon’s premier research and development centers. Our diverse research portfolio combines the best technologies to deliver innovative, custom solutions with real-world benefit.

We are developing a domain-independent platform for building and delivering problem-solving based learning activities over the web. The choice of problem solving as the underlying learning activity is motivated by its applicability to a wide range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning domains. We are currently focused on applying the learning platform to build a high school Physics assessment system covering topics in Electricity and Magnetism.

This work is funded by the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) Contract N00014-12-C-0535. It is performed by a large team of researchers, software developers and educators at Raytheon BBN Technologies in collaboration with the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standard & Student Testing (UCLA-CRESST).
