Yes. Though Knewton currently powers courses in a variety of subjects — including reading, math, chemistry, biology, physics, anatomy and physiology, accounting, finance, management, and sociology — there are some subjects that do not work well with Knewton technology. In general, in order to benefit from Knewton, learning experiences must be at least partially online and able to be measured objectively (in other words, there must be “correct” and “incorrect” answers). Certain subjective disciplines — poetry, dance, sculpture, creative writing — don’t fit into these guidelines and therefore can’t be assessed directly by the Knewton platform.
