1 Billion PrepU Questions Answered

Learn why this milestone signifies the demonstrated value of adaptive learning for your students.

Our adaptive learning system, PrepU, helps every student learn more, while giving instructors the data they need to monitor each student’s progress, strengths, and weaknesses. PrepU powers key Wolters Kluwer digital resources that are used across our nursing education curriculum: Lippincott CoursePoint, Lippincott PassPoint, and Lippincott CoursePoint for Nursing Concepts.

And now, we’re excited to announce we’ve hit a huge milestone: 1 billion questions have been answered with PrepU!!!

The benefits of adaptive learning are vast, and it is a proven way to improve retention and course mastery.

Here are just some of the reasons so many nursing students are using PrepU and why the billion mark is significant: 

✔  The large number of users in PrepU improves question reliability and calibration statistics.  

✔ Adaptive learning platforms like PrepU improve students’ retention and mastery of course content; studies show an 11.4% increase in on-time graduation rates, and a 5.5% increase in program retention over five years. 

✔ For a product to be truly adaptive, you have to know the precise level of question level difficulty – and the only way to do that is for the questions to be analyzed using actual student response data. 

✔ PrepU is built around content with known difficulty calculated by a difficulty algorithm – as opposed to a subject matter simply setting a vague difficulty level. 

✔ With 1 billion questions answered, the demonstrated performance of students helps to adjust for any kind of ‘aberration.’ In PrepU’s case, the difficulty of each question is determined by analyzing actual student response data – not by guessing 

Congratulations, PrepU, for helping so many nursing education students succeed!
