McGraw-Hill Connect Improves Student Success and Increases Engagement at Florida State College!

Professor Elizabeth Tuckwiller needed to find a way to engage student interest in learning psychology outside of the classroom to reduce the time spent in lecture trying to cover every topic in the course. Read this CASE STUDY on how McGraw-Hill LearnSmart, the adaptive learning system within Connect® Psychology, has helped her students to learn core course content outside of class. Now students experience the major concepts of the course through online labs and activities, and as a result, Professor Tuckwiller has time to bring more dynamic, engaging activities and videos from Connect into her classroom. And it is working—students are spending much more time with the material and pass rates have leaped from 75% to 83.6%.



She says, “Connect Psychology drastically improves student engagement, and it is the next wave in digital learning and blended course development. It frees up class time for labs, activities and other forms of active learning. I am very, very pleased with it.”


Professor Tuckwiller recommends Connect to faculty and now plans to use the McGraw-Hill and Blackboard total course solution to seamlessly deliver her course in one place.
