What might help students create a path to success in the challenging (but vital) Medical Terminology course? Digital learning tools can help them “make the grade.” According to a recent report, 74% of surveyed college students feel they would perform better if their instructors would use more technology.
How can you help improve outcomes and engagement? Try assigning digital in your course. Students in Medical Terminology courses are spending more time on their homework and earning better grades when MindTap counts for 20% of their grade.
Our 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.
How, specifically, does MindTap benefit Medical Terminology students? The results illustrate that the more time students and instructors spend in MindTap, the better they fare:
- Students who use MindTap at least three hours per week are more than twice as likely to receive a 90% average or better compared to students who spend less than an hour.
- Students who use MindTap every week are more likely to get an 80% average or higher compared to students who only log in every other week.
- Instructors who spend eight or more hours managing their course through the semester get students to spend an hour more per week working in the course.
- Instructors who customize the learning path for their course get ~70% more students to spend an hour or more per week in MindTap.
