What is the Adaptive Practice Tool?
The Adaptive Practice Tool is a new way to gauge your ability and identify areas where you need to focus your study time.
How does the Adaptive Practice Tool work?
As you take Adaptive Practice sessions, the difficulty of each question will adjust based on your performance. If you’re doing well, you’ll get more challenging questions. If you’re struggling, questions will get easier. This helps determine how well you understand a given lesson.
After a couple dozen questions, the tool will be able to determine how well you know the material. After your session, you’ll be provided with a list of lessons that you should focus on, prioritized from Needs Work to Proficient.
Will the Adaptive Practice Tool affect my score?
Adaptive Practice sessions are not graded. They’re just a way for you to better understand where to focus your study time.
About Priority Rankings
Your post-assessment report will give you one of the following rankings for each topic covered: Needs Work, Progressing, or Proficient.
|Needs Work: These lessons are the most important for you to review. You’ll want to study the concepts in this lesson more thoroughly.|
|Progressing: Indicates that you’re doing well on a topic, but there’s still room to improve. You may need further review on these topics, but you’re getting there.|
|Proficient: You know this material well. While it’s always good to review what you’ve studied, you can put these lessons lower on your priority list.|
What does “Relative Ability” mean?
Your Relative Ability is a gauge of how you performed relative to other students in the session as a whole.
You can find Adaptive Practice sessions throughout your syllabus and on your dashboard. Adaptive Practice sessions occur after a smaller sub-topic so that you can practice what you’ve just studied and know where you might have to go back and focus your studies.
