Educators on EquitySim have access to pre-built, gamified assignments integrated with our AI Grading Rubric.
We've collaborated with top professors and industry partners to achieve key learning objectives and maximize engagement.
Assignments include variations across following:
Individual vs. Competition
Length: 1 day, 1-2 weeks, semester long, year long
Portfolio construction for various personas (ex. HIRISK and LORISK)
AI Learning Progression Reports:
Evaluate how students are grasping concepts like asset allocation, diversification, and risk management over time.
Frequency of reports sent to professors are requested on individual basis (typically every 1-2 weeks).
What the Reports Include:
Through the collection of the students activities and behaviors over time, our AI evaluates students progression in several key areas. Below are a few examples of things we provide to professors to create immediate feedback loops between them and their students:
Progression or advancement across investment vehicles
Research/Thoughtfulness of rationales improving over time
Return variability (high/med/low)
Frequency of visiting the platform and searching companies
Frequency of creating new portfolio strategies and rebalancing existing portfolios
NOTE: This not the extensive list of information we can provide. Our AI Reports provide much more detailed analysis on each of these areas for your students.
