Abstract: This study focuses on enhancing students’ learning competency in learning mathematics. Current personalized learning systems that are available are comparatively more informational instead of using practical approaches to sharpen learners’ ability in learning. Most course materials that has been designed to accommodate learners incompetency in learning are unable to initiate learners interest to take part in learning practices which can enhance their understanding and analytical ability. This study aimed to promote each learner’s learning competency by designing and proposed a prototype learning system that not only personalized learning contents which has already been implemented by others researches but also a personalized assessment model based on learners’ ability. This prototype system focuses on enhancing learners’ ability by confronting learners to their learning difficulties. This system provides learners with appropriate proportion of questions based on learners’ strength and weaknesses in learning. This system gauge learners’ interest in learning by adapting lessons material that employed the combination of multimedia components such as animation and audio-video teaching with interactivity elements. At the end of this research, learners’ performance will be evaluated through continuous assessments and learners are expected to have an improvement in term of analytical and problem solving skills and be able to recognize the patterns and key words in solving mathematical problems and that overall learning performance will be increased. Field experiments were conducted on students of age 13 to 15 years and teachers teaching Mathematics. The research method used in data gathering includes questionnaire, observations and interviews. Comparative analysis were done by comparing personalized and non-personalized systems where the analysis shows that in personalized system there is a significant improvement in learning achievement.
