NEW YORK, New York (PRWEB) March 11, 2015
Pearson has released the MyLab & Mastering Business and IT Efficacy Report for 2015, which highlights MyLab & Mastering’s impact on teaching, learning, and retention. Although each institution, course, and classroom is unique, all instructors in higher education face a wide range of common teaching and learning challenges. The studies in the report illustrate the variety of ways in which educators are using the MyLab & Mastering series of online homework, tutorial and assessment products, and how the implementations have led to improved student learning outcomes. With input from more than 11 million student users annually, MyLab & Mastering creates learning experiences that are truly personalized and continuously adaptive.
After the implementation of MyAccountingLab in Principles of Accounting I and II courses at Spokane Community College in Spokane, WA, the average percentage of students who earned a final course grade of A increased 12 percentage points: from 17 to 29 percent.
In a Managing Information Technology class at Washington State University, students who used MyITLab substantially improved their scores on the Excel component of the course: the percentage of A/B scores increased from 37 to 65 percent, and C/D scores decreased from 60 to 24 percent. Students reported that they found the program to be easy to use and helpful.
To review the complete case studies, please see the MyLab & Mastering Business and IT Efficacy Report for 2015.
John Tweeddale, Pearson’s Senior Vice President of Efficacy and Quality, said, “We applaud the participating institutions for their efforts and determination. We are proud that our collaboration with these educators, using Pearson learning technologies, has helped learners at these institutions achieve a higher level of success.”
