What is Adaptive Learning?
Unlike traditional activities in which students all receive the same set of tasks in the same order with the same wording, adaptive learning allows activities to be tailored according to students’ learning needs. For example, a multiple-choice question may be asked of a student. If the correct answer is provided, the student moves on to another question. If an incorrect answer is provided, it is evident that the student needs more support to understand the question and reach the correct answer. An adaptive activity may offer customised feedback, an alternative question or a remedial pathway to address this. These alternative questions and remedial pathways may also vary in nature, depending on which incorrect answer was provided by the student. Adaptive learning acknowledges that not every student learns in the same way and that their learning can be better supported if they are given guidance to find correct answers themselves.
