    The Student Activity View allows you to see your student’s progress on a given assignment and you can even see the exact version of the problem they are working on. This helps you determine where a given student may be struggling. Connect’s Section Performance report provides a dashboard view of how well your students are doing on course assignments.

Case Study

“I am able to work on more conceptual work. I can work with students on ‘active’ listening and how to describe music using the vocabulary terms they have learned within each unit. We are able to talk about our experiences while listening to a piece and how the music works.” “The listening review assignments have helped students to understand the abstract concepts of active listening. I have seen an increase in the use of the concepts and vocabulary used in listening assignments discussed in student concert critiques. Students seem to be more engaged in their listening and at concerts they attend.”
