Naiku's New Personalized Learning Features Adapt to Student Performance
Naiku is adding adaptive learning resources to its cloud-based classroom assessment platform, which teachers can set to send students different resources based on their individual learning.
The software is commonly used to measure and track students’ proficiency of standards in any subject area through a variety of meta-cognitive tools, such as justification/journaling and reflection to help teachers gauge understanding and progress. It is also used by teachers and PLCs , and across districts with common assessments.
A key part of the upgrade is the ability for teachers to share and remix items from their assessments with each other, as well as create new assessments from the company’s test question bank or via a test generator. Questions can also be aligned to specific learning targets. Since it is a cloud-based platform, scoring and results reporting are completed automatically.
Teachers can also have instructional resources sent to each student -- these resources may vary based on students’ individual proficiency, as determined by the software and other factors specified by the teacher.
All these changes are designed to allow teachers to adapt their instructional resources toward more personalized approaches, and to align them with new learning standards, like Common Core or the Next Generation science standards.
