Continuously Adaptive Learning
Do you want to meet your students where they are in the learning process? Thanks to advances in adaptive learning technology, you no longer have to teach as if every student learns in the same way and at the same rate. Based on cognitive science research, Mastering with Adaptive Learning assesses student performance and activity in real time and, using data and analytics, personalizes content to reinforce concepts that target each student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Help students study better
Dynamic Study Modules help students study effectively—and at their own pace. How? By keeping them motivated and engaged. The assignable modules rely on the latest research in cognitive science, using methods—such as adaptivity, gamification, and intermittent rewards—to stimulate learning and improve retention. Each module poses a series of questions about a course topic. These question sets adapt to each student’s performance and offer personalized, targeted feedback to help them master key concepts. With Dynamic Study Modules, students build the confidence they need to deepen their understanding, participate meaningfully, and perform better—in and out of class. Available for select titles.
Target gaps in student understanding
Adaptive Follow-Ups provide targeted practice and coaching to help students master the material. Relying on findings from cognitive psychology studies, Adaptive Follow-Ups incorporate spacing — the practice of repeatedly presenting information over spaced intervals — to help students retain information. Each assignment is broken into sets of questions that target gaps in understanding based on the student's past performance on course work to date, including homework, tests, and quizzes. Available for select titles.
