One important component to the personalization of The My Math Academy system is the adaptivity feature. We take the data from each child's in-game experience and use it to inform what the next “just right” activity is for that student. For more information, see the following article:
When a child first starts playing My Math Academy, our short, in-game pretest gathers that data and places each student at the most appropriate starting point. The program uses their age as a first clue to set the child to a predicted appropriate pretest. After that, the system adapts to the learner and serves developmentally appropriate games for each specific child.
