Knewton Adaptive Learning
Available with select MyWritingLab courses
The Learning Path in select MyWritingLab courses will now be powered by Knewton — a powerful adaptive learning engine that monitors each student’s performance and provides personalized recommendations. These recommendations guide students through the contents of the Learning Path, presenting the next topic each must master. Individualized Learning Paths, working together with your course assignments, help your students gain comprehensive mastery as efficiently as possible.
What is Knewton Adaptive Learning?
The Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform™ customizes standardized educational content to meet the unique needs of each student. Knewton analyzes learning materials based on thousands of data points—including concepts, structure, difficulty level, media format—and uses sophisticated algorithms to piece together the perfect bundle of content for each student, constantly.
What makes Knewton unique?
Knewton offers the best recommendations to each student to maximize his or her learning:
- Knewton collects a vast amount of data on how students learn.
- Unlike other systems, the Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform is continuously adaptive, not based on a limited pre-programmed decision tree.
- The adaptive learning is progressive, getting more accurate as students move through a course and to subsequent courses.
With Pearson, the Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform guides students through the high-quality content you’ve come to rely on to help them succeed.
How does Knewton work with MyWritingLab?
As a student works on assigned homework, quizzes, and tests, or in the Learning Path, Knewton evaluates the student’s results and recommends a topic for study.
Students can view their progress to see all they have accomplished with the Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform as their guide.Back to top
