A Case Study at Oregon State University (OSU) finds stakeholder engagement and close collaboration are shown to be important to the adaptive courseware implementation process.
In line with a culture of innovation, and as part of its Undergraduate Student Success Initiative (USSI), OSU elected to implement adaptive courseware in “gateway” courses, that are foundational to student profess at the university. These courses tend to have high-enrollment and significant academic difficulty and attrition. They pose particular challenges for Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students, poverty-impacted students, and first-generation students. OSU aims to scale adaptive courseware implementation to over 25% of their undergraduate “gateway” general education curriculum.Download Case Study Oregon State University
