A fresh, innovative way to enhance student learning.

How ScootPad Works

Powered by a virtuous cycle of mastery, ScootPad delivers continuously personalized learning for every student.

How ScootPad Works

Adaptive Diagnostic & Practice

Students start with an adaptive diagnostic and continue with ongoing adaptive practice in concepts needing mastery.

Just-In-Time Instruction

Bite-sized videos offer instruction in each concept - available on-demand and pushed when required seamlessly during the practice.

Automatic Assessment

Strategically spaced automatic mastery checks assess student knowledge ensuring retention and recollection over a longer term.

Comprehensive K-8 Curriculum

Common Core, US State and International Standards covering Math and English (ELA).

Adaptive and Targeted Differentiation

Powerful and flexible differentiation capabilities to meet your students' unique needs.

Differentiated Learning
  • Adaptive

    Fully Automated

    Guides each student to master concepts at their own pace and along their own learning path while supporting them when and where they need help.

  • Hybrid

    Semi Automated

    A little bit of both to ensure that students can achieve mastery independently while receiving timely targeted intervention from the teachers.

  • Targeted

    Teacher Driven

    Teachers take the drivers seat and target mastery in specific concepts while providing interventions to students in small groups and 1-on-1.

Built on Decades of Research

Inspired by decades of research and guided by our distinguished advisors from Stanford University, ScootPad's adaptive learning platform harnesses the power of Mastery Learning and the Personalized System of Instruction to transform student learning.

Mastery Learning (ML)

Our platform is a practical realization of Dr. Bloom's mastery learning techniques, one that is as effective as one-to-one tutoring and capable of delivering a 2 sigma effect on student achievement.

Personalized System of Instruction (PSI)

Our pedagogy is fueled by PSI, Dr. Keller's innovative method of instruction, which builds on the mastery learning theory and is based on the idea of reinforcement throughout the learning process.

The Spiral and Spacing Effect

Research shows that "spacing" and "spiraling" of curriculum leads to more robust encoding of information and better long-term learning (Schmidt & Bjork, 1992). In conventional "blocked" or "massed" curriculum, learning is concentrated in continuous blocks resulting in an "illusion of competence" (Bjork, 1999).

  • ScootPad

    "Spaced" and "Spiraled" Learning

    Concepts are practiced simultaneously over time ("spiraling") and revisited with strategically spaced mastery checks ("spacing"). Our approach helps students make connections over time, which creates more robust pathways for recalling information over a longer term.

    Spiraled Learning
  • Others

    "Blocked" or "Massed" Learning

    Each concept is practiced and mastered one at a time in a "sequential" or "streak" method. Such massing encourages quick and effortless processing of information leading to reduced attention and short-term learning (Dempster, 1988; Rohrer, 2009).

    Blocked Learning

Dynamic Scaffolding

ScootPad scaffolds content in real time adjusting to each students' individual mastery needs. Scaffolding is dynamic and spans across the DOK and grade levels.

Vertical Scaffolding

ScootPad adjusts content rigor and depth with a stronger comprehension level along the Depth Of Knowledge (1-4) scale. Beginning with DOK Level 1 content, we ensure the fundamentals are mastered before digging deeper.

Horizontal Scaffolding

ScootPad drives mastery at the concept level, and redirects struggling students to pre-requisite concepts across any K-8 grade levels before proceeding with learning new concepts.

True Adaptive Learning Tool

Independent research by EdSurge offers a framework to evaluate adaptive learning tools.

EdSurge developed a framework to decode "adaptive learning technology" and offers a three-pronged approach to evaluate how tools adapt to learners in real-time.

ScootPad has been recognized as one of the only three tools (out of 22) that enable adaptive assessment and sequence for grades K-8. Of the three, ScootPad is the ONLY tool that offers both Math and ELA across grades K-8 and accessible over the cloud (24/7) on all major platforms/devices including iOS, Chromebook, Android, Kindle and Windows.

Since this research was published, ScootPad released major improvements to the adaptive algorithms to enable real-time content scaffolding and DOK-led content rigor driving deeper personalization across all the three areas of adaptivity.

Why More Than 6,000 Schools Use ScootPad

Lynn Andrews, Allesandro Elementary School
ScootPad continues to hit the mark on providing students with much needed Math and Reading practice while acquiring computer knowledge. ScootPad has become an important tool in the success of our students.
Howard Greenfield, Silver Oak Elementary School
With the use of ScootPad, our 3rd graders grew on their state test, 21% in ELA and 7% in math.
Rebecca Balentine, Huntsville City Schools
Students whose abilities range from below grade level to those who are performing consistently above their grade level are challenged on a daily basis. We love ScootPad and look forward to using it next year.
Joseph Macchia, Oak Lawn-Hometown School District
We were immediately impressed with both the adaptive nature of the platform, as well as the depth and breadth of data available to our teachers.
Cheryl Hill, Fort Gibson Public Schools
Every student in our district has a device as part of our district 1:1 initiative. Our elementary students (k-5) use ScootPad as an integral part of their virtual instruction using their own devices. They communicate with their teachers and receive assignments and practice through ScootPad.
Mrs. Ussery, Zolfo Springs Elementary
I was HOOKED the minute I signed up my class. ScootPad helped my students and myself understand what each standard was addressing.
Mrs. Hernandez, Kapowsin Elementary
Students have made progress in both math and reading. I also like that we don't have to print out any papers. Parents are able to view students' work and reports as well.
Mrs. Michele Liggins, James Jackson Elementary
My students have shown substantial academic achievement while utilizing ScootPad. I have seen great improvement from my lowest students (first grade level) to substantial gains from my higher students (third grade level).
Ms. Michelle Shelton, Highland Park Elementary
It is a great timesaver when I can have them reading and responding to informational passages and they can see immediate results. Their scores have climbed this year on benchmark tests and I know ScootPad is a big part of the reason why! We LOVE ScootPad in our classroom!
Patty Clancy, Deputy Elementary
I'm seeing great results because my students' scores are improving on their math and reading assignments.
Ms. Rebecca Dunn, Carolina Forest Elementary
I wanted something that would be engaging and would differentiate, as well as address the Common Core.
Ms. Gradone, Hillsborough Elementary
Overall, my students have become more motivated to learn. Not only do they ask to use ScootPad more often throughout the day, but they are using it at home every night. They have taken control of their own learning and their desires have exploded. They are more engaged than ever!
Tamela Warren, Union Hall Elementary
After utilizing ScootPad, my students have made vast improvements in Language Arts. They have more confidence while completing independent assessments. Also, my fifth grade students are exposed to more vocabulary and enjoy working to master each unit.
