Abstract: College-level introductory math courses are notorious for students’ high rate of failure and lack of mastery Adaptive learning systems were created to address these problems However, research on these systems is limited The purpose of this study was to examine students’ satisfaction with the use of an adaptive learning system in an introductory college math course Additionally, final grades of students who used the system were compared to final grades of students who did not use the system Results revealed that students who used the system had higher final grades than students who did not use the system Therefore, it would benefit students if use of the adaptive learning system was continued in introductory math courses
