Wiley and Snapwiz to bring Adaptive Learning Technology to WileyPlus
Launching this summer for use in fall 2013, WileyPLUS with ORION will be included at no extra cost to students using WileyPLUS across some of Wiley’s leading titles in disciplines such as Introduction to Business, Introduction to Psychology, Financial Accounting and Anatomy and Physiology.
Students begin by taking a quick, chapter-level diagnostic to determine their baseline proficiency. Based on the results of their diagnostic and ongoing practice, WileyPLUS with ORION will present students with questions appropriate for their current level of understanding, and will continuously adapt to each student, helping them build their proficiency. WileyPLUS with ORION delivers individualized notifications and reports to help guide students in using their time most effectively. All content is tied to a specific learning objective and each interaction is tracked, measured, and used to help improve productivity, support retention and lead to greater student confidence. Instructors have access to dashboard reporting on student/class usage and overall class proficiency, including detailed views of productivity and metacognition. The questions used for the adaptive practice are numerous and are not found in the WileyPLUS assignment area.
