Successful e-learning implementation depends on building a strategy that meets the needs of the learners. Gained competences and experiences from the previous researches in the area of adaptivity and personalisation, as well as applying a pedagogical approach to formative CAA applications, created the motivation to merge adaptive hypermedia systems and instructor-centred paradigm with the goal of making learning more efficient and effective. The proposed prototype from this study offers a solution framework in the direction of adaptive formative CAA systems. This paper describes the evaluation applied on the effectiveness of using an adaptive testing system in university modules in conjunction with the course. The key contribution in this respect is clarifying a correlation between using the proposed system from this study and students’ exam results, as well as the association between the total time students spent in using the proposed system and their results. The evaluation strategy is explained and the findings of the evaluation are presented.
