Adaptive learning supports mastery-based learning, a school of teaching founded on the idea that student progression through a course should be dependent on proficiency as opposed to the amount of time spent on academic work. Knewton Math Readiness, for example, is designed to present students with personal learning paths as it continually assesses their mathematical proficiency and adapts accordingly. Lessons consist of videos, online textbook selections, and lesson quizzes.
