“Adaptive learning” is a popular edtech buzzword, used by curriculum and learning management systems alike.  Yet, there’s very little clarity around what this technology does, doesn’t do, and how it actually works.

With support from education giant Pearson, EdSurge spent six months extensively researching and developing a framework on what “adaptive learning technology” does.

EdSurge took a deep dive into 23 different tools to analyze how each tool adapts or responds to a learner in real-time.

We’re pleased to announce that ScootPad has been recognized as one of the three adaptive tools, alongside McGraw Hill’s ALEKS and Pearson’s SuccessMaker, that enable adaptive sequence and adaptive assessment for grades K-8. Furthermore, of the three, ScootPad is distinguished as the only platform covering both Math and ELA for grades K-8, accessible from anywhere at any time on any mobile/desktop device.
