Rapid and Durable Learning
Perceptual and Adaptive Learning Modules (PALMs) help learners to quickly master the ability to discriminate among concepts and items belonging to different perceptual categories, fostering learning that is durable and long-lasting.
Years of scientific research in laboratories at UCLA and the University of Pennsylvania reveal that the adaptive learning algorithms used byInsightLT greatly reduce learning time and ensure strong retention.
PALMs offer unique opportunities for rich feedback that is incorporated directly into the ongoing learning session. This immediate feedback helps learners master the patterns and relationships that underlie the correct classifications of items.
Objective Learning Criteria
PALMs set an objective standard of mastery for each category of items to be learned (e.g., diagnoses, anatomical identifications), allowing educators to monitor the status of each individual’s progress in mastering the learning points/categories and make sure that the learning experience is complete.
Tracking & Assessments
In addition to tracking individual items, overall performance is tracked and monitored. PALMs, coupled with Assessments offer unprecedented opportunities for exposing and giving additional practice in areas of the individual learner’s weaknesses.
Once each category of items has been mastered – after several spaced, accurate answers, each made within a target response time – it is retired from the learning set for that session, thereby focusing the learner’s efforts on material that still needs to be mastered.
Sequenced vs. Unsequenced Modes
The Sequenced Mode guides learners through a series of learning events: pre-test, training, post-test, optional further practice, and an optional delayed test. The Unsequenced Mode puts learners in charge of their own learning style, allowing them to work on training modules or assessments in any order and as frequently as desired.
Robust User Management
Our administrator tools allow educators to manage instructors, classes, and individual learners, as well as easily set different learning modes for individuals or groups.
Powerful Score Reporting
The Score Reporter benefits both learners and educators by reporting the most useful features of the individual’s learning progress, such as difficulty in mastering each learning point/category, individual performance history, and more.
