NROC for Adult Education

NROC for Adult Education

Honor every learner's unique know-how and empower them to master the math and English they need to meet their academic and career goals.

The NROC Project has been actively working with adult education leaders to develop web-based tools that engage, inspire, and support today's adult learners. NROC offers a product bundle specifically configured for the needs of adult education professionals. NROC’s award-winning multimedia content is accessible in both EdReady and HippoCampus.

  • EdReady is a web-based, personalized learning platform that contextualizes a student’s path to math and English mastery within the context of a specific educational goal. The low-stakes, self-paced nature of the EdReady application improves student confidence and persistence, and the real-world problems and assignments reinforce why learners need to master fundamental math and English skills. Adult institutions and programs can secure a customized EdReady site that provides access to robust, real-time student performance analytics, customized messaging, multimedia supports, and seat-time tracking (coming in early 2021).
  • HippoCampus is a curated repository of over 7,000 multimedia learning objects spanning 13 subjects. These videos have been aligned to the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education.

“A beautiful part of EdReady is that you get to listen to presentations and worked examples. We have some ESL students who either are pursuing HiSET or are just trying to improve their English and math skills. Being able to actually practice the listening piece is vital and really helps build vocabulary. It’s really rich for ESL populations.” — Renee Bentham, Department Chair, Missoula County Public Schools Adult Education Division (Montana)
