The Adaptive Learning System is an innovative educational model designed to meet diverse academic needs of students in regular classes. This model serves as an alternative approach to educational innovation for medical schools striving to be responsive to the learning needs of individual students with varying abilities and educational experiences. Underlying the model´s design is the premise that students learn in different ways and at varying rates and require different kinds of instructional support. The Adaptive Learning System accommodates and builds upon these differences through adaptive instruction and evaluation in which a variety of instructional methods are adopted and tailored to the needs and the learning characteristics of individual students, and specific interventions are used to increase each Student´s ability to benefit from the learning system.
