CONNECT REPORTS

You no longer have to stress about how you're doing in class. Connect Insight provides reports that give you visibility into how you're performing in your course throughout the entire term. That means you don't have to rely on your instructor to tell you how you're doing, putting you in the driver’s seat of your own success!

 Track your progress over time

Know exactly when you need to step up your game to improve your course grades

Review how you're doing with the time spent against scores achieved

Set your own personal learning goals to help you earn the score you want in your course

SmartBook Reports

SmartBook (and LearnSmart) reports provide real-time information on performance. They create a personalized study plan for you based on what you know, what you don’t know, and your confidence level. You can go directly to the areas you are most challenged by to spend your time focused on what you still need to learn and what you’re most at risk of forgetting.

 

Knowing which learning objectives, topics, and questions give you the most trouble allows you to spend time studying those concepts and not those you already know.
