Quantum® Field Research: Find it, Fix it, and Thrive - The Impact of Insisting on Proficiency in Prerequisite Knowledge in Intermediate Accounting
In this study, Quantum’s adaptive learning and assessment software was used to assess student understanding and mastery of core concepts required to be successful in Intermediate Accounting. Using an “all or nothing” grading approach combined with Quantum’s individualized tutoring help and targeted practice tools, the treatment group improved two full letter grades over the control group.

Quantum® Field Research: Intelligent Adaptive Learning Software Increases Test Scores and Maximizes Student Effectiveness (University of Saskatchewan)
After one group of students completed a homework assignment using Quantum® , their test scores improved 1.9 times more than a group of students who used an online homework management system. When Quantum® was removed from the first group of students and given to the other group, the pattern of performance differences was reversed, with the Quantum® group gaining 2.6 times more than the online homework group.
