McGraw-Hill Connect Improves Grades and Pass Rates at Front Range Community College!

Professor Anita Miller felt that her students taking Human Anatomy & Physiology were not spending enough time practicing or reviewing anatomical concepts outside of class. She was looking for a solution that would provide them with opportunities to practice on their own and motivate them to do more. Read this CASE STUDY to learn about how Connect® Anatomy & Physiology enabled her to post required assignments and additional practice opportunities for her students, all with instant feedback and automated grading. As a result, more students are earning A’s and B’s and fewer students are earning C’s and F’s! Pass rates for her course have also increased 11%, from 75% to 86% – the highest passing rate for the course that she has ever seen.



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.

McGraw-Hill Connect Improves Student Success at Solano Community College!


Professor Laura Maghoney sought to help her students develop a deeper understanding of economics principles through increased retention of key course concepts. She turned to Connect® Economics, with its embedded graphing tool and interactive assignments, which helped her to accomplish this goal and significantly improved student performance in the course. Read this CASE STUDY for more information on the improved outcomes that Professor Maghoney and her students experience with Connect.



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.”

McGraw-Hill Connect Improves Grades at Washtenaw Community College!

Professor Robert Hagood knows the value of practice problems in his course, but felt limited in the amount of homework he could assign due to the time it took to manually grade and review it in class. He found that Connect® Physics enabled him to assign a sufficient number of practice problems for students without adding to his grading time or using valuable class time to review. Not only do his students now get immediate feedback on their homework, but Professor Hagood is able to monitor individual student progress, as well as focus on areas of difficulty for entire classes. Read this CASE STUDY to learn how implementing Connect Physics led to a noticeable increase in student engagement and academic performance.

McGraw-Hill Connect Increases Student Retention and Engagement at University of Cincinnati!


Professor Frank Wray was looking for a solution that would help him to offer all class content online while adapting to his pedagogical style. He found that Connect® Biology not only met this need, but also increased student performance, engagement and retention in all of his courses. Students demonstrated higher mastery of concepts by using LearnSmart adaptive study modules, which monitor student performance and adapt instantly based on their knowledge. Read this CASE STUDY to learn more about his experience with Connect.



“Connect with LearnSmart has helped engage the learner in a way I didn’t think was possible,” noted Professor Wray. He plans to continue to refine his courses within Connect Biology, and to use it for both online and traditional courses.
