alta is Knewton’s fully integrated adaptive learning courseware that puts achievement within reach for everyone. Robust, curated content and assessment for students, plus deep insights on student progress for instructors, means we empower learners to realize their unique potential and gain mastery over their course material, while instructors can make more informed teaching decisions.
alta also provides conventional online learning product features like homework, quizzes, and tests, which we designed to ease implementation of our mastery-based solution in real classrooms. It also integrates with Learning Management Systems so instructors can easily post back traditional grades for the quizzes and tests students take within the courseware.
How can I use alta in my class?
Instructors use alta in a variety of formats: face-to-face, hybrid, online-synchronous or self-paced, and in support of multiple blended learning models, including:
- Traditional learning models (where “homework” is used to assess and evaluate learning after the material is covered in class)
- Flipped models (where homework is primarily used to introduce topics and/or evaluate students’ prior knowledge)
- “Tipped” models (where adaptive assignments can be used to introduce and assess prior knowledge on a topic and quizzes or tests are used to assess learning after class coverage of the topics).
