3DLV University Study
What is the XPrize Study
3DLV hopes and expects to be selected for the first round of the XPrize Competition testing. As a result of that selection, 3DLV’s Spellcaster prototype will be tested against 14 other semifinalists’ apps for six months by approximately 800 adults in three U.S. cities.
After six months, a second judging round will select up to 5 finalists to continue the field test and each will win a $100,000 award. After six additional months of testing, the $3 million Grand Prize will be awarded to the team whose software produces the greatest gains in literacy over the entire 12-month field test. Achievement Prizes of $1 million each will be awarded to the Teams showing the greatest gains in each of the two demographic groups (English and non-English).
3DLV Independent Studies
3DLV expects to begin independent studies to support the continuing development of Spellcaster, regardless of the outcome of the XPrize Competition. The timing of these studies will, of course, be dependent on the outcome of the competition.
3DLV expects that Dr. Rose Cevcik, University Professor of Psychology at Georgia State University, will prepare and lead these studies. At present, plans are to include five programs in the study (more may be included, based on the outcome of XPrize).
