Prodigy Content Update: TEKS 7 & 8 + Improved Differentiation

Prodigy’s adaptive features just got better!

While your student or child is playing Prodigy, we’re adapting the material they receive in the background so the content is just right for them. We’ve significantly improved these background processes, which will:

  • Improve our placement test
  • Allow students to continually move upward based on their skill, removing grade caps after placement test
  • Increase the time between when a student fails out of a skill and when they re-encounter the skill
  • Prevent curriculum cross over
  • Prevent high number of questions in one skill
  • Significantly reduce the instances of repeated questions

  • New Quest lines requiring movement throughout the maps.
  • New Quest Styles requiring players to collect items from around the zone.
  • New NPCs
  • New “Healstones” replace the healers in the new zones. Healing now requires the answering of a math question but costs no gold.
