The tools (Visual Ranking, Seeing Reason, Showing Evidence and Assessing Projects) were written over 10 years ago in an application environment that is dated, lacks flexibility and is too expensive to maintain and update. Similar tools (https://engage.intel.com/docs/DOC-59367) that are more effective and mobile have since come to market. Furthermore, usage has been dropping regularly. For these reasons, Intel has decided to take the tools offline by 5-15-2017 and will invest in future products and programs that will have more impact. Please use these months to save what artifacts you wish to keep, export assessments and search for alternatives.

Analyzing cause-and-effect relationships is important to understanding complex systems. With the Seeing Reason Tool students create visual maps of the factors and relationships in a cause-and-effect investigation. These maps make thinking visible and promote collaboration as students work together to refine their understanding.
The tool and related resources are available for free, from any computer that is connected to the Internet. Students may work on their lists at home or at school, and can even compare their ideas with students located in distant classrooms.
