P816: Using online adaptive supplemental activities for targeted instruction

Kristen Murphy, Karrie Anderson (University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, USA)

Instruction in the classroom typically targets the average student in the class.  In order to assess the level of this average student in the course, an instructor can integrate informal assessments and use the results of these assessments to alter or target instruction to the appropriate proficiency level of the average student.  However, supplemental instruction can target the specific proficiency level of an individual student by initially assessing the student and providing both instruction and practice designed for the level of the student.  We will present how we designed such a system to teach two specific concepts online.  We will also present the performance results of the students using this system as well as the use of the system in a collaborative environment.
