Customizing content through adaptivity
Learning tools that respond to each user’s needs and provide customized instruction are described as “adaptive.”
Research suggests that adaptive systems that provide timely feedback as students engage with the learning technology have been found to be as effective as human tutors. Adaptive products also assess individual performance to ensure that each student receives the practice opportunities needed to master all key skills.
