Stocks in this article: ENL REN RUK

PHILADELPHIA, September 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Dynamic  to ol  to  help nursing students better prepare for course exams and the NCLEX  Exam

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of Elsevier Adaptive Quizzing (EAQ), in collaboration with Learning Objects, Inc.'s Difference Engine. EAQ directly addresses the market need for a personalized quizzing tool that enables nursing students of all academic aptitude levels to better focus their study time and effectively prepare for course tests and the NCLEX Exam.

In addition, EAQ offers instructors the tools they need to monitor student progress and improve learning outcomes. It is designed for use both by individual students for self-directed learning as well as in the context of instructor-led courses. EAQ will be available in its first release November 2013.

"We are particularly excited about the launch of EAQ because we believe that adaptive learning has the potential to address a wide range of student learning needs, while moving all students toward desired competencies," said John Danaher, President, Elsevier Education. "EAQ represents the first of many initiatives that Elsevier will be pursuing in the area of adaptive learning and competency-based education."

EAQ is ideal for undergraduate nursing programs seeking to expose their students to targeted practice quizzes that enrich their learning and enable prioritized, focused study time. Concept-based or QSEN-oriented programs and programs using HESI products that seek a bank of complementary practice questions can benefit as well.

Adapting  to  educational needs

EAQ allows instructors to track students' progress across assignments and relative to exam readiness and adjust their teaching accordingly. Using faculty dashboards, teachers can quickly identify class trouble spots, where some students might be struggling, and identify those who may need focused attention. Intuitive individual dashboards also allow students to monitor their personal progress through increasing levels of mastery, helping them focus their time and energy on those areas where they need the most improvement.
