Adaptive Follow Ups Video Transcript

This is a transcript of the video on the Educator Features page.

Adaptive follow-ups are personalized assignments that take advantage of the teaching moment that follows a Mastering assignment. Students can start to address their misconceptions right away, on their own. Before they take root, and before you need to move on to the next topic.

Here’s how they work. If you enable the adaptive follow-up assignment, once students complete your homework, they are immediately directed to the adaptive follow-up -- where the Knewton adaptive learning engine selects questions from the Mastering item library to address each students individual gaps in understanding.

Behind the scenes, the Knewton engine identifies the concepts from your homework that the student knows and doesn’t know. These concepts are mapped in a knowledge graph, which identifies core prerequisite concepts that are important to the overall understanding of the concepts on your homework.

Knewton also analyzes past performance on Mastering assignments to select item types that were most effective for the student on previous assignments, and items and concepts that were most helpful for students with similar performance profiles.

Adaptive follow-up assignments progress in stages through multiple question sets. Each new set of questions adapting to student results on previous sets. Students work through the assignment until they complete the number of question sets you specify when adding the adaptive follow-up, or until they demonstrate an understanding of the material.

Masterings adaptive follow-ups personalize the learning experience, continuously adapting for each student using the best and most appropriate content at just the right time to help every student be more successful in your course.
