By assigning MindTap, you can help your psychobiology students succeed in your course. When MindTap counts for at least 20% of their grade, students are engaging in course material more and performing better.

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

Recent analysis of MindTap usage for all disciplines across the 2014-2015 academic year demonstrates that using MindTap can have a significant and positive impact on student learning and outcomes.

Digital counts. When instructors assign MindTap for at least 20% of their grade, students spend 50% more time in the platform. Psychobiology students who use MindTap at least 3 hours per week are nearly twice as likely to receive a 90% average or better compared to students who spend less than an hour. And, those who use MindTap every week are twice as likely to get an 80% average or higher, compared to students who only log in every other week.

If faculty use the platform, students will use the platform. Instructors spending time in MindTap drives students to spend time in MindTap:

  • Instructors who spend eight or more hours managing their course through the semester get students to spend nearly an hour more per week working in the course.
  • Instructors who customize the MindTap learning path for their course get approximately 40% more students to spend an hour or more per week in MindTap.

How can you encourage student achievement using MindTap?

  • Use MindTap to build good study skills. Scores increase the earlier the assignments are started before the due date.
  • Use the MindTap features & apps during the course. In Psychology & Psychotherapy, students using the Flashcard app more than ten times during the term are more likely to get a 90% average or better.
