Nearly four out of five college students in a recent survey said that having immediate access to data analytics regarding their academic performance had a positive impact on their learning experience. The study, conducted by Hanover Research on behalf of McGraw-Hill Education, suggested that students seek the same kind of immediate feedback in the classroom as they get from social media.
The survey of 2,657 college students found that almost two-thirds of students believe the impact of analytics reports on their academic performance is “very positive.” Three-quarters of the students said adaptive learning is “very helpful” to them in retaining new concepts. Adaptive learning technology is designed to personalize students’ learning experiences based on their command of course material, enabling them to focus their attention on the concepts they need help understanding, at the moment they need it.
