The study compares three adaptive learning style scenarios, namely matching, compensating and monitoring. Matching and compensating scenarios operate on a design-time mode, while monitoring applies a run-time adaptation mode. In addition, the study investigates the role of pre-assessment and embedded adaptation controls. To measure the effectiveness of different adaptive scenarios, a software application serving as a test-bed. was developed. An experimental study indicated that the monitoring adaptation led to higher learning achievements when compared to matching and compensating adaptation, although no significant effect was found.
