alta’s adaptive learning platform uses a mastery-based approach to learning, creating individualized, variable-length experiences for every learner based on what they prove they know and what they still need to learn. Helping students achieve mastery can be at odds with conventional grading systems that require fixed sequences of content administered uniformly to the entire class.

To help instructors bridge the gap between traditional grading systems and mastery-based learning methods, alta combines adaptive assignments graded by a percent mastery with non-adaptive quizzes and tests that can be graded by percentage.
