Student Preparedness: New and proven technologies for learners that bridge the gap

Each year in the United States, nearly 60% of first-year college students discover that, despite being fully eligible to attend college, they are not ready for postsecondary studies. While access to college remains a major challenge, states have been much more successful in getting students into college than in providing them with the knowledge and skills needed to complete certificates or degrees.

Lack of readiness for college is a major culprit in low retention rates, as the majority of students who begin in remedial courses never complete their college degrees. As a result, improving college readiness and preparing for an incoming academically diverse student population must be an essential part of national and state efforts to increase college attainment. Cited from

Why Adaptive Learning and Differentiation technologies are an answer

Adaptive and competency based learning offer the opportunity to differentiate courses and programs through more personalized-and personally relevant-learning experiences.

Adaptive Learning is both a concept and a tool. The concept has existed for quite some time, but new adaptive learning technologies allow for:

Personalized Learning: Allows for content delivery and assessment to meet students’ unique needs and abilities, which can be done digitally and via a heavily automated process thanks to learning analytics and predictive modeling

Automated Teaching: Mixes one-on-one engagement with faculty and automated coursework to provide the student with the perfectly engineered learning curriculum.
