Would you like to see improved participation and outcomes in your History courses? Try assigning digital. Our studies show that students spend more time on their homework and earning better grades when MindTap counts for 20% of their grade.

Digital learning tools are important to the students in today’s college courses. According to a recent report, 74% of surveyed college students feel they would perform better if their instructors would use more technology.

Our recent analysis of MindTap usage during the 2014-2015 academic year shows that using MindTap can have a significant and positive impact on student learning and outcomes.

Digital counts. When MindTap assignments count for at least 20% of their grade, History students spend 50% more time in the platform. What’s more, students who use MindTap at least three hours per week are twice as likely to receive a 90% average or better compared to students who spend less than an hour. The data shows that students who use the platform consistently are more likely to improve their grades. Make it count. Get the results.

When faculty uses MindTap, students do, too. Our data shows that, when History instructors devoted eight or more hours in one term to managing their course within MindTap, their students spent four times as much time working in the course. Additionally, we observed that instructors who customize the learning path for their course get approximately 70% more students to spend an hour or more per week in MindTap.

MindTap also helps to develop and reinforce good study skills. Students who set aside time for MindTap assignments and start them early perform better. As an example: History students who used the Flashcard app more than ten times during the term were more likely to earn a 90% average or better.
