Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Adopt Adaptive Learning

Learn why so many nursing schools are turning to adaptive learning
and how it’s making a huge difference in test scores and student retention.

Students love adaptive learning!

With its personalized and responsive format, 92% of students cite adaptive quizzing as their favorite feature of educational tools like Lippincott CoursePoint and Lippincott PassPoint.

Adaptive learning is proven to improve NCLEX® pass rates.

The first-time NCLEX-RN exam pass rate for students using Lippincott PassPoint averages at 98.3%, compared to the 83.6% national average.

Adaptive improves students’ retention and mastery of course content.

A peer-reviewed study in the journal Nurse Educator found that the use of adaptive learning tools resulted in an 11.4% increase in on-time graduation rates, and 5.5% increase in program retention rate over a five-year period.

Adaptive questions are constantly vetted by real users.

Students have answered more than 1 billion questions on Lippincott’s adaptive learning platform, resulting in incredibly valuable data on question difficulty and effectiveness. Calibrations are always adjusting to ensure difficulty levels are consistent with the objectively demonstrated performance of students. True adaptive functionality is only possible with real difficulty data.

The actual NCLEX is adaptive.

The NCLEX is administered using computerized adaptive testing (CAT). By automatically tailoring the next question to estimate the candidate’s ability based on their previous answers, the CAT provides a reliable and valid measure of nursing knowledge. So practice with adaptive quizzing is critical to get ready!

Adaptive is truly personalized.

Each student’s experience is based on their own performance—questions aren’t simply scrambled. Students know exactly how they’re doing and where to go next. Students practice at their own pace, and study more effectively.

Adaptive can be used for any type of curriculum.

Whether you teach in a traditional or concept-based curriculum, or somewhere in-between, adaptive learning tools can be used to measure student performance on any of your learning objectives.

Adaptive provides real-time reporting.

Adaptive learning and formative assessment determines what students know as they are learning—and students get performance feedback while instructors can track class data to gauge the level of understanding. It provides better insight into student performance while there is still time to adapt.

Adaptive maximizes study time.

Students get a clear picture of their strengths and weaknesses, so they don’t have to spend time on content they already know. They can focus on improving in the areas where they’re struggling.

Adaptive remediation improves student learning.

Adaptive learning provides students an authentic experience in which to practice and learn. Students practicing with adaptive learning is an example of learning by doing, where students practice in authentic situations in which they must actively retrieve information to answer questions.
