How SmartBook 2.0 Adaptive Questions Work

Rooted in several learning science principles like spacing, chunking, and interleaving, SmartBook 2.0 creates mini-cycles of questions that consist of no more than five concepts at a time creating smaller, easier to absorb “chunks” of content. Each mini-cycle works like this:

  1. It utilizes questions that are different but with related ideas.
  2. Once students demonstrate that they understand a concept, the related questions will no longer appear.
  3. If students continue to struggle with a concept, they are more likely to encounter repeating questions. This is how SmartBook 2.0 limits guessing and short-term, rote memorization.

This unique question approach improves comprehension and long-term retention and sets Connect with SmartBook 2.0 apart from any other adaptive tool on the market today.
