Independent research sponsored by Pearson recognizes ScootPad’s Adaptive Learning Capabilities

San Jose, CA – Feb 22, 2016 – ScootPad, a leading adaptive learning platform for grades K-8, announced today that an independent research on adaptive learning conducted by EdSurge, sponsored by Pearson, recognized ScootPad as one of the three adaptive tools, alongside McGraw Hill’s ALEKS and Pearson’s SuccessMaker, that enable adaptive sequence, content and assessment for grades K-8.

“Adaptive learning” is a popular edtech buzzword, used by curriculum and learning management systems alike. Yet, there’s very little clarity around what this technology does, doesn’t do, and how it actually works.

With support from education giant Pearson, EdSurge spent six months extensively researching and developing a framework on what “adaptive learning technology” does. EdSurge took a deep dive into 23 different tools to analyze how each tool adapts or responds to a learner in real-time.

ScootPad has been recognized as one of the three adaptive tools, alongside McGraw Hill’s ALEKS and Pearson’s SuccessMaker, that enable adaptive sequence, adaptive content and adaptive assessment for grades K-8. Furthermore, of the three, ScootPad is distinguished as the only cross-domain platform covering both Math and ELA and accessible anywhere, at any time and on any device.

“We’re thrilled and humbled to see ScootPad recognized alongside products from industry giants such as McGraw Hill and Pearson in this adaptive learning category.” said Bharat Kumar, CEO of ScootPad. “We are also very excited about several major enhancements to our content and the adaptive learning algorithms scheduled to release this fall that are sure to widen the gap between ScootPad and the competition”.
