McGraw-Hill Connect with LearnSmart Improves Student Success and Engagement at the University of Colorado Denver!

Professor Joy Berrenberg, of the University of Colorado at Denver, needed a way to ensure that the students in her psychology course were familiar with the textbook material prior to lecture. She began using Connect Psychology and found that not only did it solve the problem, but it also freed up her time in class.

“Connect Psychology enabled me to spend more lecture time on more advanced material and examples rather than spending so much time on getting through basic concepts,” she says.

Professor Berrenberg also found that students using Connect Psychology did much better in the course than students who had not. She attributes this, in part, to the use of McGraw-Hill LearnSmart, the adaptive study tool within Connect that is designed to help students learn faster, study more efficiently, and retain more knowledge for greater success.

“I loved the adaptive testing nature of LearnSmart,” she says. “I have always had problems getting the majority of students to read the text, and this system helps with that tremendously!”
