In college classrooms across the country, instructors are witnessing the effectiveness of MindTap for improving academic outcomes and student success in today’s courses. The data from their courses show that, when they’ve assigned MindTap, they’ve seen successes in the form of higher test scores and overall improved student outcomes.
What’s more, their students are telling them that MindTap helped them review, understand, and master the course content, and that they enjoy engaging with the homework and learning activities. For example, students said:
- “MindTap was extremely helpful and I was able to grasp and practice concepts with relative ease.” (Student using MindTap for General Chemistry)
- “MindTap is very helpful. I’ve retained a lot more information this year than when I took psych previously. I don’t think it would have happened without MindTap. I’ve become more interested in psych because of it.” (Student using MindTap for Psychology)
How MindTap improves student outcomes and success: Examples from three recent studies
Three of our recent studies show the successes that instructors across disciplines have seen when using and assigning MindTap in their courses. For example:
- At Texas Tech, students using MindTap for General Chemistry had an 87% success rate in the course, an increase of 26% over those using a learning solution from another publisher. (Download the MindTap for General Chemistry case study)
- In a study of 2,500 U.S. History students, those using MindTap for U.S. History achieved a 13% increase in final grade over students who didn’t use MindTap. (Download the MindTap for U.S. History case study)
- In a study of fourteen Introductory Psychology courses across thirteen institutions, students using MindTap did 33% better in a post-test exam than those who did not use MindTap. (Download the MindTap for Psychology white paper)
