(By Balaseshan) Apollo Group Inc. (NASDAQ: APOL) said its unit has received a two-year contract worth $1.4 million from Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) to test how cognitive and non-cognitive factors together affect learning.

Carnegie Learning Inc. said the ADL laboratories, located in Alexandria, Virginia and Orlando, Florida, prototype and test learning technologies and innovations for the U.S. Department of Defense.

The Hyper-Personalized Intelligent Tutors project will explore how factors such as interest-level, mood, and persistence affect learning.

The project will build a collaborative research platform for understanding how cognitive and non-cognitive factors working together impact retention of knowledge and a student's commitment to keep learning.
