IntellADAPT Launches First Big Data Analytics Driven Adaptive AP Physics Course

The percentage of students who receive a 5 on the Advanced Placement (AP) Physics 1 and Physics 2 exams is 4.6% and 8.5% respectively. (CollegeBoard, 2016). The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that by 2018, the U.S. will have more than 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs due to the lack of qualified workers to fill them. IntellADAPT is positioned to ensure that U.S. students are prepared for the exciting career opportunities in STEM-related fields.

IntellADAPT, a leader in adaptive learning technology, has recently launched the first Adaptive AP Physics course to prepare students for the AP physics exams.  A high score in AP physics exams enables high school students to get into good universities and reduces cost of education by earning college credits. The adaptive course is integrated with the classroom instruction as an adaptive resource for the classroom (ARC).   This ARC allows students to learn difficult concepts in physics with differentiated instructional design and continuous intelligent feedback with assessment and remediation. ARC uses big data analytics to enable teachers to get real time student data to improve learning outcome for AP classes.

Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, ScD MIT, founder and CEO of intellADAPT, commented “There is an acute shortage of AP Physics teachers in educational workforce today. As Physics is gateway course to various fields within STEM education, it is essential that we provide necessary adaptive resources and big data analytics to enhance physics education. We are delighted to receive National Science Foundation funding to provide adaptive learning for physics education across the country.”

This coming spring semester 2017, IntellADAPT is working with numerous teachers and hundreds of students across USA. The adaptive physics offering is used to better accommodate individual learner’s needs to deepen their comprehension of physics.  Physics is a foundational course for many STEM careers, including those in the health care industry, yet many students struggle through the content, get discouraged, and drop out of their dream majors as a result.

“Big data analytics driven adaptive learning technology is a powerful learning tool for students to master difficult concepts using multiple learning strategies,” said Charles McClinton, PhD.  VP of Academic Program Development. “The platform enables teachers to manage their class and improve competency of the students simultaneously.”

About intellADAPT, Inc.:  IntellADAPT is an EdwiseTech Inc. company, a pioneer in adaptive learning and is based in UMass Boston’s Venture Development Center.  Founded in 2014, its products are based upon cognitive learning theories and the latest brainwave science to perform real-time analytics and drive deep comprehension. The company has developed a patented Adaptive 2.0 platform to enable advanced education technology for STEM education.

Dr. Charles McClinton presents at the APLU 1890 Institutions HBCU Presidents’ Summit in Atlanta

Boston, MA, intellADAPT announced today that it will be partnering with historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to demonstrate the effectiveness of intellADAPT’s patented adaptive learning process in improving retention and graduation rates in STEM courses with HBCU students.

With intellADAPTs Adaptive 2.0 platform, students will be presented with content in line with their own preferred learning strategy. In addition, intellADAPT will work with HBCUs to establish adaptive online programs via a network of collaborating colleges and universities that will benefit from the application of adaptive learning strategies when combined with patented educational technology. intellADAPT has developed its adaptive learning programs and technology with grants from the National Science Foundation. Based on the outcomes of efficacy studies, the technology has proven and achieved the following results and more.

MIT PiVOT Project
– Freshman Physics Course: completion rate increased from 82% to 96% and failure rate decreased from 18% to 4%.

iMBA Program
– Two Year Program with 70% completion rate was replaced by a one-year adaptive program, which achieved a 91% completion rate.

Adaptive MOOC (Molecular Dynamics)
– Twelve week course resulted in completion rate four to five times higher than for traditional MOOCs, with 1078 students from 45 countries.

Dr. Charles McClinton made a presentation to the “Council of 1890 Institutions (HBCU) Presidents” at the American Public Land-Grant Universities (APLU) sponsored 1890 Institutions Presidents’ Summit in Atlanta, GA on June 15th, discussing how intellADAPT can assist 1890 institutions in addressing the need for more African American graduates in STEM. Dr. McClinton pointed out that although HBCUs have graduated a significant number of students who have continued their training and/or completed graduate studies in STEM, there are professional fields of study where African Americans are lagging far behind. These areas include medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, etc. Because these areas require that applicants demonstrate mastery in STEM courses, which usually starts during the freshman year, minority students who attend HBCUs (and other institutions as well) with these aspirations are not being retained or graduated in sufficient numbers to address the current and projected needs of the African American community. For example, it is projected that in 2025, there will be a shortage of physicians in America. But when we look at the data from the past century (and before) until now, where currently around 5% of all American physicians (approximately 1 million) are African American, the percentage historically, has never exceeded 5%, in spite of a current and growing population of approximately 50 million U.S. Citizens. Dr. McClinton stated further that the 1890 Institutions in partnership with intellADAPT, can make a difference in addressing the retention and graduation rates in STEM, especially for pre-health minority students, as referenced in the example earlier, who are seeking to prepare for and apply to health and medical schools and programs upon graduation. He went on to state that the proposed partnership can reduce and/or stop the constant migration of minority students who either change their intended majors after the STEM experiences of their freshman year or decide to withdraw from college all together.

The presentation resulted in a number of HBCU Presidents or their representatives indicating their interest in exploring partnership opportunities with intellADAPT in the near future.

Dr. Charles McClinton, an HBCU graduate and speaking on behalf of intellADAPT, commented that a significant number of minority professionals currently work in STEM fields who received their training at HBCUs. He goes on to say:

however, there are too many minority freshmen experiencing difficulty in STEM courses who attend college with the intent of pursuing careers in which mastery of STEM courses serves as a key prerequisite for attending health, medical, and graduate schools after graduation. Unfortunately, numerous students who fall into this category change their career interest and decide to pursue studies unrelated to STEM courses or in many situations they decide to withdraw from college all together” He further stated state that “this is crucial when one considers the African American population in the United States has grown to approximately 50 million citizens and yet there are so few minority professionals who are currently practicing in the fields of medicine (around 5%), dentistry (< 4%), pharmacy (5.4%), etc.

The collaboration between intellADAPT and HBCUs will lead to the formation of the first Adaptive massive open online courses platform (Adaptive MOOC).

intellADAPT is based in Boston, MA, and has received funding from the National Science Foundation’s SBIR program. The intellADAPT team is passionate about transforming education into a truly personalized and adaptive experience for each and every individual learner. Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, CEO and Founder, while conducting research as the Principal Educational Architect at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), noticed first-hand the struggles in learning that students faced. This led him to research how students learn and how they are best taught. He received a patent and launched intellADAPT to overhaul the status quo ‘one-size-fits-all learning’ to help learners use their own best strategy to gain competency for any concept.

intellADAPT for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Subjects)

Many students struggle to master STEM courses, become discouraged, and turn away from their career target, when all they need is some extra explanation. intellADAPT fixes that problem by presenting topics through reading, games, hands-on practice, videos, and assessments to reinforce deep learning. intellADAPT’s platform with STEM courseware bridges the knowledge gap.

intellADAPT’s STEM courseware

intellADAPT has a portfolio of adaptive courses for STEM subjects available for the introductory or AP level taught typically to high school juniors and seniors and college freshmen and sophomores. Adaptive 2.0 courses are geared to reinforce instruction in the classroom, although some teachers use the content in a flipped classroom context.

Students find the courseware not only reinforces concepts, but also helps them prepare for exams, such as Advanced Placement exams and SAT2.

Courses available now include Physics, Algebra, Statistics, Biology, and Calculus. More courses are in development and will be released over the next few months.

Customized Courseware

intellADAPT can create custom courseware for any instructor in any subject. The Adaptive 2.0 platform enables educators to create their own course if they wish.
