When an instructor can see, at the end of week one, that five students haven’t opened the book and three students read the book but didn’t understand, then the instructor can intervene by contacting the students and opening the door to communication.
Because webtexts prompt students to respond at least once for every five minutes they spend inside our learning environment, mastery is assessed multiple times in every chapter. Starting with rigorous learning outcomes, we author automatically graded multiple choice questions for every page of content. This high number of engagements enables a map to develop showing what each of your students, and your class as a whole, are learning.
What you can know about your class:
What you can know about an individual student:
What we measure so that instructors can intervene when there's still time to make a difference:
What you can know about your webtext:
The ability of a publisher to know how effectively their content works is nothing short of revolutionary. By reviewing the (anonymous) results of students interacting, we can, for the first time ever, know what works and what doesn't. We release a new edition of each webtext twice a year. And we have the data to prove that each edition is, in fact, stronger than the one before.
