The pilot at AIU involved adaptive learning with intelli path in both English composition and mathematics classes. Students randomly assigned to adaptive learning sections supported by intelli path showed positive results including a 13.6 percent decline in withdrawals, a 4 percent increase in persistence and a 6.8 percent improvement in final course score. Armed with these findings, AIU has expanded the use of adaptive learning technology into history, accounting, business and economics classes, with plans to expand across the curriculum.CTU’s study focused primarily on student and faculty engagement and satisfaction. In a survey including the Winter and Spring 2013 terms, 94 percent of faculty and 87 percent of students involved in adaptive learning with intelli path expressed a belief that the technology-enriched experience contributed toward improved student achievement. CTU has now expanded the use of intelli path into additional mathematics courses, a college readiness course and business management. “Our adaptive learning technology provides one-on-one tailored instruction for the needs of each student at that moment in time. It is as if every instructor has a class of one,” said Timothy Gleason, Adjunct Professor for CTU. “In the past, you taught the same course every quarter and fought fires as they appeared. With our new technology, I can now see class-wide trends that indicate where students are struggling and can offer focused assistance where it’s needed.” Over the course of the next year, additional course-level and program-level learning maps will be finalized, and intelli path will be added across the full curriculum at AIU and CTU, including in some graduate-level programs. The technology will connect students from one class to the next as they transition from fundamental concepts to more advanced applications and higher level problem solving. If students need a refresher as they move to more advanced content, intelli path will quickly take them back to the basics and direct them through sequenced curricular nodes to the current application of knowledge. Additional Career Education schools, including the International Academy of Design and Technology, Le Cordon Bleu, Sanford-Brown and Briarcliffe College will soon be integrating intelli path into their courses as well. intelli path is based on the powerful adaptive learning platform and engine developed by the Dublin-based research and development company CCKF. “We are excited about the deep pedagogical partnership established between ourselves and Career Education” said David Collery, Founder and CEO of CCKF. In partnership with CCKF, Career Education’s faculty and instructional technology teams have spent more than a year developing detailed learning maps, robust course content and student assessments to ensure that the adaptive learning engine delivers a rich and challenging experience to students. Existing learning maps are being refined and additional learning maps are being developed every day to spread the benefits of intelli path across the curriculum.
