Abstract

An adaptive module on basic enzyme kinetics was developed for first- and second-year university students. The module offers more assignments to students who have less knowledge of the theory than to more advanced students. The aim of the research was to investigate what influence students’ backgrounds have on their use and appreciation of this module. Both freshmen and second-year students showed a large variation in the number of assignments they needed to perform in order to finish the module, indicating that the module’s adaptive feature was exploited by all the students. Findings indicated that the prior knowledge was of influence of students’ motivation and perception of difficulty of the module
