Increased rates of passing grades. Decreased student withdrawals. Improved persistence and retention. Higher levels of engagement. These are just some of the student performance metrics Career Education Corporation (NASDAQ: CECO) is beginning to achieve with a new adaptive learning technology unveiled today. The technology, which was pilot-tested earlier this year and already has been used by students in more than 11,000 course enrollments in 300 sections including English composition, mathematics, accounting and business management, will soon be integrated across the curriculum at our institutions.

Called intelli path, Career Education’s adaptive learning technology delivers data-driven personalized learning by harnessing the power of a sophisticated analytical engine and rich faculty-developed content. More than 1,500 students at Colorado Technical University (CTU) and American InterContinental University (AIU) participated in pilot tests of the technology beginning in Fall 2012. The preliminary results were so promising that Career Education has since moved toward a full scale implementation.

“Career Education is revolutionizing online learning. Throughout our pilot studies, the intelli path platform made a meaningful difference in the engagement of our students and faculty,” said Scott Steffey, CEO and President of Career Education. “With this new technology, Career Education has effectively combined art and science so instructors in our schools know from minute to minute, which students are succeeding and which need additional instruction. It’s an academic and technological breakthrough that advances cognitive science. Adaptive learning, supported by intelli path technology, allows us to visualize how each student learns through their interaction with the material.”

intelli path’s revolutionary new analytical engine conducts continual, real-time assessments of student knowledge and skills based on sophisticated learning maps designed by faculty to align with the academic courses and programs of Career Education’s schools. The technology uses assessment results to determine what content, applications and practice problems will be presented to the student, and in what order. In minutes, the engine determines whether a student needs additional help with foundational skills, more time refining those skills through additional practice problems, or if he or she is ready for a greater challenge. As a result, the system continuously adjusts the student’s learning experience to meet his or her specific needs. Additionally, sophisticated analytical dashboards keep faculty members informed of each student’s progress and needs so that instructor interactions with students can be optimized.

As part of its revolutionary design, intelli path also provides educators immediate feedback regarding the efficacy of any given lesson plan so the faculty member can adapt their instructional technologies in real time. This distinctive technology does not focus on single academic subject areas, such as math, or single educational needs, such as developmental education, but is instead applicable throughout the entire curriculum.

Already as of June 30, our students have answered more than 6 million assessment questions and have completed over 648,000 lessons, more than 61,000 knowledge assessments tests and over 212,000 practice and revision lessons.
