Since competition is a powerful motivational factor, a set of competition models have been proposed, such as individual competition and social competition. However, few studies highlight students' choice preference on these different models, especially students' choices is attracting more and more attention in student-centered design. Thus, this paper proposes the concept of personalized competition model, which offers different competition mechanism according to students' choice preferences. More specifically, students can choose self-competition, social competition, or self- and social competition. For each category of competition, different adaptability design based on students' choices is discussed to maintain their engagement. Now, a learning system is being developed according to this conceptual model and an evaluation of the system on student learning would be conducted in the near future. The result would help revise the design of personalized competition model.
