The impact of a mathematics computer-assisted learning platform on students' mathematics test scores

  title={The impact of a mathematics computer-assisted learning platform on students' mathematics test scores},
  author={Marcelo Perera and Diego Aboal},
Since 2013, the Uruguayan educational system has been using an online adaptive learning tool for mathematics: The Mathematics Adaptive Platform (PAM for its Spanish acronym). PAM's content has been adapted to the national curriculum and it is a tool that - based on an analysis of students' experiences - offers personalised feedback according to each student's skill level. The use of PAM has been spreading throughout the education system. By 2016, approximately half of all students in 3rd…
