How Does Personalized Learning Impact Students?

We’re always striving to answer this question with more depth and evidence, but in a word: positively. Though personalized learning is still a new, evolving approach, both the outside research and our own studies say it makes students more confident, understood and appropriately challenged—which leads, of course, to better performance. And this isn’t exclusive to struggling learners, or learners who need to move faster: wherever they start, all students reach new heights with personalized learning.
