Hawkes Learning

  • Hawkes Learning

A comprehensive automated homework and testing system centered around adaptive, mastery-based learning modules.

For each learning module, Hawkes engages students through three simple modes: Learn, Practice and Certify. Learn is a multimedia-rich presentation of the lesson content with interactive concept builders and instructional videos. Practice engages students through algorithmically generated problems with intelligent tutoring and error-specific feedback. Certify requires students to demonstrate mastery of the material at a defined proficiency level without access to tutoring aids. Students are provided adaptive remediation in Practice in between each attempt to reach the mastery-level in Certify. Instructors have extensive customization options and reporting tools to support student learning.

Equity

3.5 / 5
Total Equity Rating
Existence and quality of product attributes that promote equitable outcomes for African American/Black, LatinX, Indigenous/Native American, Asian American, Pacific Islander and Southeast Asian, and Alaskan Native students, poverty-affected students, and first-generation students.

The level of visual representation of people from different backgrounds varies by discipline. In their statement to the Product Advisory Board, Hawkes Learning uses equity-minded language and shows a commitment to equity best practices.

There is little evidence that equity-centric research was used in product development. There are disciplines in which more examples of equity-based topics could be integrated, like the discussion of minimum wage in the Economics text.
