One important component to the personalization of The My Reading Academy system is the adaptivity feature. The system uses each child’s game-play performance to decide what they are ready to learn next, ensuring every child gets the right starting point and customized learning path.
When new students start playing My Reading Academy, we know very little about them and, therefore, cannot precisely recommend lessons to these students. To overcome this challenge, the system presents a pretest experience to the players to conduct a quick assessment. A series of short, interactive activities assess prior knowledge, and the system places a student in Learning Activities in less than 20 minutes. After that, the system adapts to the learner and recommends developmentally appropriate games.
