Can adaptive technology help students encourage students to finish more assignments and do better on tests? That was the question researchers at the Center for Research and Reform in Education at Johns Hopkins University were tasked with answering in a sponsored research project. Knewton, which provides online and adaptive learning courses for undergraduate students in chemistry, economics, mathematics and statistics, contracted with the Center to run a study on the relationship between student use of Knewton’s courses and subsequent success in the courses.
