    This paper presents and discusses in detail the results obtained by an evaluation of an adaptive course served by the GALE system developed in the EU FP7 project GRAPPLE. The main goal of that evaluation is to understand the influence of adaptation on students’ learning in an adaptive hypertext course. We analyzed the students’ logs, the performed tests and assignment grade as part of the quantitative method. The qualitative method consists of the analysis of a questionnaire, where students answered questions about their first experience in an adaptive course. Through the questionnaire, usage log, tests performed and assignment grades, we show that the students follow, in most of the cases, the adaptive structure of the course. We also present results about how the students felt about the adaptive course. At the end we discuss future work, and in particular suggest changes to the setup and adaptation in the course based on the observed student behavior as well as the student feedback.
