Everyone has a unique starting point, they have differing needs, preferences, gaps, and destinations. We provide a GPS for learning, no matter where you go, how many detours you take we can get you to your learning destination.

Navigator for Learners
A simple GPS for learning. Identify where you are, then search for a destination and start exploring the learning journey.
We have comprehensive Navigator experiences in Math, Science and ELA, with many more in development.
Gooru and the collaborator community have the ambitious goal of mapping out all of human knowledge and making it openly available for anyone to use. These efforts are ramping up quickly. If you are interested in contributing, join the effort today!
Math Navigator is a comprehensive math course with content coverage from grade 2 through high school. It can be used to supplement math curricula in integrated or traditional course pathways, providing opportunities for support, practice, and enrichment. Math Navigator’s content includes a variety of Common Core aligned resources, videos, simulations, practice questions, and assessments designed to gauge mastery.
Learn more about the Math Navigator from this real-world story on its use.
The teacher’s Learning Journey page provides a high-level overview of student progress.
Teachers can view a Class Proficiency Report showing individual student skylines. Each skyline can be clicked on and expanded.
The skyline is visible on the teacher’s page and on the student’s page. The numbers across the bottom of the chart represent domains, like Counting & Cardinality and Geometry. Each gray box represents one standard (competency) in that domain. As students learn and show mastery, the boxes fill in blue and the skyline (the thick white line) grows. The objective is for the skyline to reach the green destination line, marking grade-level proficiency.
Teachers can view, download, and print progress reports over any date range. These reports show the number of competencies gained by each student, as well as time spent on collections and assessments, average score, and the number of suggestions taken.
Science Navigator includes NGSS-aligned content for grades 6, 7, and 8 in the areas of Earth and Space Sciences, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Science and Engineering Practices. It can be used to supplement science curricula following traditional or integrated course pathways, including Stanford’s SCALE curriculum. Content includes standards-aligned videos, interactives, simulations, labs, and demonstrations, along with free-response questions, argumentation, offline projects, and machine-graded assessments. We are currently working to expand Science Navigator to include elementary and high school science.
Collections include a wide range of standards-aligned resources including interactives and simulations.
Science Navigator utilizes free-response questions to provide opportunities for students to brainstorm, plan investigations, hypothesize, and construct arguments.
In addition to open-ended responses, Science Navigator includes machine-graded Checks for Understanding (CFUs) to help assess mastery and to provide immediate feedback to students.
Science Navigator includes several offline activities and projects like this one. These activities often have linked instructions and multiple tasks that allow students to enter text, link documents, and upload images. Teachers can attach rubrics to these activities to use for grading.
English Language Arts (ELA) Navigator is coming soon. It will include Common Core aligned content from upper elementary to high school courses, providing opportunities for support and enrichment in foundational language skills, reading literature and informational texts, writing, and speaking. Content will include a variety of resources and multiple opportunities for students to practice ELA skills in machine-graded assessments, offline activities, and comprehensive projects.
There are a wide range of resources in ELA Navigator, including videos, websites, and document uploads.
ELA Navigator includes a variety of machine-graded questions to assess understanding. Question types include multiple-choice, text highlighting, drag-and-drop ordering, and categorizing.
ELA Navigator utilizes culturally-responsive projects and activities to assess larger, cumulative standards. For example, students explore ELA.L.7.4.A, Using Grade-Appropriate Vocabulary, through a project on the Climate Crisis, including videos, written guides, and free-response questions.

Park County School District
At first I must admit students weren't super excited, but when they started seeing how they were improving, progressing, and meeting their learning goals, they became so excited. They even wanted to get back onto Math Navigator when they completed their MAP testing, so that they could improve their scores for next time.
Joe Wallace, VP Engineering
During the 2019-2020 school year, Silverback Learning Solutions worked with a school district to help Gooru pilot their Math Navigator program.It was exciting to see the district have instant access to over 4 million curated educational resources; helping create personalized learning pathways for students. Gooru's support and engagement to make the pilot successful was a true reflection of teamwork. We look forward to more joint client engagements in the future!

This tool is helping us understand the learning level status of our class. We are getting results of assessment within minutes, so it is helping us to prepare the further plan for children’s learning. Navigator is also supporting us by providing teaching and learning material. Students' learning level can be found on a single screen, so it becomes easy to track child learning proficiency for continuous comprehensive evaluation.

I enjoy using Gooru as a supplemental math mechanism for my students. I also enjoy the data it provides that can fuel my instruction and reteaching. Some successes (we have experienced) include: reaching a multitude of students' needs and learning levels. This program works at its own pace, with/for each learner. It gives them a variety of skills and modalities to teach such skills.
