is a web-based assignment platform that gives students the means to better connect with their coursework, with their instructors, and with the important concepts that they will need to know for success now and in the future.
With Connect Geology, instructors can deliver assignments, quizzes and tests online. Nearly all the questions from the text are presented in an auto-gradable format and tied to the text’s learning objectives. Instructors can edit existing questions and author entirely new problems. Track individual student performance – by question, assignment or in relation to the class overall – with detailed grade reports that are easily exportable.
By choosing Connect Geology, instructors are providing their students with a powerful tool for improving academic performance and truly mastering course material. Connect Geology allows students to practice important skills at their own pace and on their own schedule. Importantly, students’ assessment results and instructors’ feedback are all saved online – so students can continually review their progress and plot their course to success.
With ConnectPlus, students receive an innovative and inexpensive electronic textbook integrated within the Connect platform. ConnectPlus provides students with online assignments and assessments and 24/7 online access to an eBook—an online edition of the Exploring Geology text.
A powerful addition to Connect is LearnSmart™! Built around metacognition learning theory, LearnSmart provides your students with a GPS (Guided Path to Success) for your Geology course. Using artificial intelligence, LearnSmart intelligently assesses a student's knowledge of course content through a series of adaptive questions. It pinpoints concepts the student does not understand and maps out a personalized study plan for success. Available as an integrated feature of McGraw-Hill's Connect Geology, you can incorporate LearnSmart into your course in a number of ways to:
Gauge student knowledge before a lecture
Reinforce learning after lecture
Prepare students for assignments and exams
Discover for yourself how the LearnSmart diagnostic ensures students will connect with the content, learn more effectively, and succeed in your course.
