LearnSmart Prep for Biology
Many students lack the fundamental knowledge of chemistry, math and cell biology needed to succeed in the majors’ biology course. Using super-adaptive technology, LearnSmart-Prep identifies what a student doesn’t know, then provides “teachable moments” designed to mimic the office hour experience. When combined with a personalized learning plan, the struggling or unprepared student has all the tools needed to quickly learn the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the majors’ biology course.
When learning tools are interactive, content is more approachable and engagement is deeper. Connect includes an Integrated eBook that builds student comprehension through animation, audio and video. As part of its rich media format, students can insert and review notes, highlight text, conduct searches for specific content and interact with high-impact images.
Category Analysis Reports
The Category Analysis report is the place to go to find out how your students are performing relative to specific learning objectives and goals. Run customized reports on the content in your assignments to determine performance across aspects like learning objective, difficulty level, Bloom’s taxonomy categories, and even your own criteria if you’ve taken the time to edit questions in your assignments with individual learning objectives for your course.
Reporting and Effortless Grading
Connect’s assignments are auto-graded, saving you time and allowing your students to instantly see how they performed. Connect’s Reports then allow you to easily review student and section performance.
LearnSmart Labs™ is a highly realistic and adaptive simulated lab experience. Students will ‘do’ and ‘think’ like a scientist by formulating a hypothesis, developing an experimental strategy to test it, and conducting simulated lab experiments to collect and analyze data.
