Adaptive tasks have a new progress criterion. Instead of focusing on Target Mastery, students will be expected to complete a certain number of questions correctly. This will help make adaptive sets more accessible with a low floor & high ceiling, allowing all students to complete at different levels of mastery and keep adaptive sets within a reasonable amount of time. These include Adaptive tasks assigned by teachers, as well as self-started adaptive tasks, including Recommended Practice.
Students will need to collect between 9 to 24 stars depending on the length of the subtopic. However, tasks will be split, requiring students to answer 3 questions correctly to complete a 'round,' meaning students will complete between 3 and 8 rounds to complete a task. The difficulty of the questions will automatically adjust according to each student's performance on previous questions.
Mastery progress will still be reported to students to encourage students to attend to precision and performance, but it is no longer the stopping criteria, so students will be able to complete a task by completing a sufficient amount of practice.
Task progress and mastery will be reported to both teachers and students.
Importantly, teachers can now reassign adaptive tasks if they would like students to have further practice to work towards higher levels of mastery. Students can also start Adaptive tasks independently to work towards higher levels of mastery.
