In the fall of 2015, MarketingWorks and SEG Measurement, two independent research firms, conducted a comprehensive study of whether students in history courses that use MindTap® receive higher grades and improve their critical thinking skills more than a comparable group of students in similar history courses that do not use MindTap.

A total of 359 students and 13 instructors teaching 21 history classes in 12 different institutions of higher education participated in the MindTap research, including eight classes that used MindTap and 13 classes that did not. All instructors who used MindTap provided feedback about MindTap throughout the semester, as did five students in a midsemester focus group and 263 students through an online survey at the end of the term.

Discover how students in history classes using MindTap achieved higher end-of-course grades than students in classes using the same textbooks and other digital tools but without MindTap.
