Effectiveness of an adaptive quizzing system as an institutional-wide strategy to improve student learning and retention

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Exploring ways to help students achieve success in nursing programs is critical to increase retention and the number of nurse graduates. This study examined the impact of an adaptive quizzing system implemented as a strategy to support student persistence and performance measured by use, grades, and graduation. Results indicated that use of the system increased course content mastery and predicted final course grades. Retention and program completion rates were also positively influenced.
