In this study, we examined the effectiveness of an adaptive tutorial on college students' learning outcomes, mainly, learning performance, motivation, and study time. Two versions of the tutorial were developed; adaptive and non-adaptive. A total of 134 undergraduate students were randomly assigned to adaptive (n=74) or non-adaptive (n=60). Our results revealed that the adaptive group had a significantly higher knowledge gains than the non-adaptive group.
