Wizard

World Book Wizard is a question-based, adaptive learning platform providing a comprehensive set of curriculum-based drills and courses for students in grades K-8. Teachers set up classes from their Wizard teacher dashboard and create drill assignments, focused around core subject areas for their students to complete. Students, in turn, access these drills through our adaptive learning portal. Each answer they give provides immediate feedback to help a student learn, and several variances of each question are given throughout the drill to eventually help a student master a topic and anchor knowledge for the long term. Along the way, students unlock gaming rewards and earn badges that display on their dashboards. Wizard helps students develop, maintain, and truly retain knowledge and skills for the long term in a way that is both fast and smart.
