The upcoming 2020-21 school year poses challenges to administrators, teachers, and students since we are still unsure what a return to the classroom will look like. No matter where students learn, adaptive learning technology can help them achieve the best educational outcomes.
How Adaptive Assessments Help Students Achieve Better Outcomes
A-List provides asynchronous and live courses, powered by a proprietary assessment and content engine to help students face the new year. The Common Core and State standard-aligned math and English questions help teachers assess where students are both succeeding and struggling, allowing them to provide extra attention where needed. The adaptive assessment tool includes a curriculum of customized questions served by an algorithm that uses the Item Response Theory. This is a method of analyzing test answers with the end goal of improving measurement accuracy and reliability. This is especially important going into the fall semester following the COVID-19 pandemic in the wake of a serious COVID / summer slide that can set students back significantly. Students who need the extra help can receive it over online classes, even if their school returns to in-classroom learning full time in the fall and will help them get up to speed quicker for the coming school year.
