McGraw-Hill Connect Improves Student Grades and Pass Rates at Virginia Tech!

Professor Amy Smith used Connect® Personal Health to convert her face-to-face course to an online, asynchronous course in Spring 2010. She found it to be a perfect solution for teaching her large enrollment classes of up to 700 students, and her students have shown significant improvement as a result. Read this CASE STUDY to learn about the 12% increase in exam scores and a 14% increase in pass rates that Professor Smith’s students experienced with Connect!



Professor Smith says that Connect has been a win-win for everyone and would recommend it to other faculty. “It allows me to offer this elective class to about 600 students per semester and 50 during each summer session. It gives the students the opportunity for self-study, and I am there to answer questions about the material and the process. Without Connect, we could not offer the class to this number of students. It’s a popular class at Virginia Tech.” She now plans to use more of the available features in Connect, such as Tegrity lecture capture to integrate recorded lectures into her next offering of Personal Health.
