What to Expect:
In this presentation, you will learn:
 What adaptive learning is and how it works
 The basics of the platform: key features
and the student experience

What is Adaptive Learning?
 Adaptive learning is a personalized learning technology.
 intellipath is the AL platform students use. It
 Customizes learning for students based on their pre-
determined knowledge of a particular subject or topic
 Creates individual learning nodes, or lessons, for each
student based on a pre-assessment. Nodes are lessons
to help students understand each element in a specific
week’s unit.
 Allows the instructor and students to work closely
together to ensure transfer of learning.

Five Unit Assignments in Each iP Course
Each of the five
weekly units in a
course has a
corresponding unit
in intelliPath.
Each iP unit contains
multiple nodes or
lessons.
Each node teaches a
skill or concept to
help students
successfully
complete that
week’s work.
Depending on the student’s responses in the Determine
Knowledge assessment, the student may be assigned 0 –
9 of the nodes.

How do students access intelliPath?
Students enter their campus classroom as usual.
 Once in the classroom, students click on the intelliPath link.

Getting started with intelliPath
After clicking on the intelliPath icon for the first time, students
will see the intelliPath landing page for the first unit.
Egg-shaped
blue pointer
indicates the
student has
accessed the
first of five
units.
Clicking on “Start
MyPath” activates
the Determine
Knowledge dialog
box/message.

Determine Knowledge
1) Before students begin working on a node (lesson) in
intelliPath, they should first complete Determine Knowledge.
2) Determine Knowledge is a pre-assessment that determines a
student’s knowledge state in relation to the unit’s content.
3) The system will use the results of Determine Knowledge to
generate a Learning Map exclusive to each student.
4) If the student does NOT complete Determine Knowledge, the
student will be assigned all of a unit’s nodes and graded on
his/her completion of them.
7
An Introduction to intelliPath: Student Training Materials
Determine Knowledge
5) A series of random questions is generated based on the
comfort level that students identified with the Knowledge
Slider.
6) There is no pre-determined number of assessment
questions. Questions are generated based on the student’s
knowledge level as revealed as she answers questions.
7) Regardless of where the student sets the slider,
Determine Knowledge will continue asking questions until
failure is reached.
8
An Introduction to intelliPath: Student Training Materials
After a student clicks on
Determine Knowledge
Students first see the Knowledge Slider.
 Students use the slider to indicate their perceived comfort
level with the topic.
Click
 After selecting their comfort level, students click on the
“Determine knowledge” button to begin the assessment.

Accessing Determine Knowledge
Students can access the Determine
Knowledge assessment in three
locations:
1.intelliPath dialog box/message
2.Top navigation bar (light bulb icon)
3.Steps tab of the Guidance section
Steps tab

Personalized Learning Path
The Determine knowledge assessment produces a personalized
learning path for each student:

To Work on a Node (First Time)
1. Students click on the node they wish to work.
2. Students click the green Learn
icon to begin work.
The lock icon indicates the student should
complete prerequisite nodes before accessing this
one. However, a student may still open and work a
node that has a lock icon.
12
An Introduction to intelliPath: Student Training Materials
Revising & Practicing Nodes
 Completed nodes can be worked at any time to improve Knowledge state.
 Student clicks on desired node. Options are to Revise or Practice. .
 Revise generates a new grade. Practice does not.

Current iP Grading (CEC)
intelliPath Grading Formula
50% - Amount of work completed
50% - Knowledge state
1. Formula is being used corporation-wide and cannot
be changed by individual schools or departments.
2. Percent of a unit’s final grade that intelliPath
accounts for can vary from course-to-course.
3. Grading of intelliPath and entry of scores into
classroom grade book are done automatically.
14
An Introduction to intelliPath: Student Training Materials
The Guidance section is the primary interface that students use to
complete their intelliPath assignments and monitor their progress.
Guidance section
gives progress
summary & includes
three tabs:
o Steps
o Progress
o Advanced
The
Steps Tab
provides directions
to guide students
along a unit’s
Learning Map path.

Displays students’ progress
on unit’s learning map:
Recent nodes covered
Progress relative to class
 Possible intervention
needed
Items with high success
17

o Displays features of the
system that provide a
fuller picture of the
student’s effort and
success.
Features include:
 Summaries of statistics
and competencies
 Detailed data of:
o Messages
o Knowledge trends
o Knowledge spread
o Learning profile
o Learning log
18

o Allows students to
improve their
Knowledge State on
learning nodes
previously worked.
o Practice does not
count toward a
student’s Knowledge
State score.
o Upon clicking on Practice, the Practice Activities appear. The
number of questions and the content of the Practice is
individualized for the student by the system.

Send Message allows
students to send messages
to their instructors.
After clicking, message
box appears.
Students click
“Send Message”
when finished.
Confirmation box appears
after message has been
sent.

o Extras provides an area for students and faculty to upload
optional shared files as supplemental course materials.
o The Google and YouTube options place students directly into
those applications and direct students to material based on the lesson
specifics. Students do not need to search for lesson materials
externally.
22
An Introduction to intelliPath: Student Training Materials
After pressing the Stop button in a node, the student is
presented three options.
 Exit: student must restart
lesson from beginning upon
next attempt.
 Suspend: student may
resume lesson at same point
upon next attempt.
 Too Hard: lesson is
abandoned and student’s
Knowledge State score
changes based on what the
system calculates the
student knows.
