This study examines the evidence for the effectiveness of adaptive learning. [] Key Method Next, the Effect Size (ES) tool is adopted as a standard way to compare the results of one pedagogical experiment to another. ES is used to analyse the effectiveness of the systems previously described, in order to demonstrate that adaptive learning can provide significant improvements in the learning process of students. Finally, a number of conclusions and future trends are discussed.
