Aquifer Calibrate is designed to leverage the concepts of test-enhanced learning and spaced repetition to drive self-directed learning in clinical students

Calibrate reporting provides faculty visibility into student knowledge gaps and certainty misalignment. This allows for meaningful mid-clerkship feedback, informed coaching, and structured remediation. Let’s get started by accessing the Calibrate dashboard.
