Key Features

  • LearnSmart


    LearnSmart is an adaptive study tool proven to strengthen memory recall, increase class retention, and boost grades. Students are able to study more efficiently because they are made aware of what they know and don’t know. Real-time reports quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students—or the entire class.

  • Critical Thinking Assessment for Biology

    • A student’s ability to think critically is crucial to their success in the majors’ biology course. Our digital author team, led by Ian Quitadamo, evaluated all questions in Connect and developed a minimum of 30% of the questions to the Apply, Analyze and Evaluate levels of Bloom’s taxonomy.
    • In addition, New Quantitative Reasoning questions encourage students to build quantitative skills, allowing them practice over and over again with algorithmic values.  These questions also supply them with robust feedback via guided solutions and hints as needed.
    • A new BioConnections question bank was added, assessing students’ ability to make connections, following biological principles across chapters and topic areas.
  • New 3D Animations for Biology

    3D Animations bring an unprecedented level of instructional value to the classroom with never before seen functionality and are ADA compliant. They cover all of the primary topics of biology. Ask your Rep for a demo.

More Features

  • 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.

  • Integrated eBook

    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

    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.

  • Lecture Capture with Tegrity

    Overcome time constraints and busy student schedules 

    With simple, one-click recording students can access your class lectures at anytime from anywhere an internet connection is accessible. A powerful keyword search function quickly pinpoints needed information. Easy access outside of class combined with a rich user experience translates into more learning opportunities and better prepared students.

  • Digital Success Academy

    The Digital Success Academy is your go-to resource for building your Connect knowledge from the ground up. Whether you’re new to Connect or looking for advanced tips, you’ll find just what you need. Made of the Connect Success Academy, Success Tips, and the Connect Blog, the Digital Success Academy is your essential tool for getting the most out of Connect.

Case Study

I use the reports to examine and post grades and LearnSmart results to check how long students are spending on the assignments. Especially for an online class, knowing that students are spending enough time online is important for getting a feel for how much effort students are putting into the class.
