SmartBook 2.0

Adaptive learning engine

What is SmartBook 2.0?

SmartBook 2.0 is an adaptive learning solution that provides personalized learning to individual student needs, continually adapting to pinpoint knowledge gaps and focus learning on concepts requiring additional study.

How the Adaptive Logic Works

Based off extensive research by our learning scientists and rooted in 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.

How to use Assignment Reports

Student Agency

Students are able to architect their learning journey by choosing their approach to assignments, how they want to be prescribed support through the Reading or Interactive Learning Resource and have the ability to use the self-study Recharge feature for extra practice on challenging concepts as many times as they need to feel confident with the objective.

In-Depth Progress Monitoring

SmartBook 2.0 tracks student progress and provides reports that allow educators to identify exactly where and when students are struggling. It helps you easily identify students who may be at risk and spend time helping them with the concepts and topics they need to learn to succeed.

Students are to monitor their own progress and take ownership for their learning.
