McGraw-Hill Connect Improves Grades and Pass Rates at Front Range Community College!
Professor Miller reports, “With exams, the overall increase in grades is obvious for the class using Connect. With the practical assessments, improvement is also visible. The high level of performance for students with an A shows that the good students know what to study for exams, whereas the lower achievers need more help, which Connect provides them.” As a result of these improved student outcomes, Professor Miller looks forward to further integrating more of the exercises and animations within Connect into her curriculum.

Professor Maghoney found that Connect also enabled her to use the time she saved on grading assignments to prepare for high-level interactive discussions during class. She says,” “I want students to be able to apply what they have learned to the ‘real world.’ With Connect, the students definitely seem to understand economics better, so that helps them make that leap to the real world. They have a stronger grasp of how events might be related to each other.”

In addition to the positive impact on student performance, Connect Lucas has enabled Professor Williams to decrease the number of printed handouts and worksheets she provides to students by 1,000, resulting in actual departmental cost savings of approximately $300 per semester!
Professor Williams says, “Connect Lucas is a tool that enables faculty to effectively teach the concepts of public speaking, coach students through the learning process, manage classroom activities and assignments, and measure the outcomes of student success. I have made Connect a course requirement that all my students must have for my public speaking classes. So much of their grade will eventually depend on tools and features that they can only access through Connect, and it would be difficult for students to pass my course without it.”
