Why did Connors State College adopt Inclusive Access?
Rock described that the primary motivation for implementing Inclusive Access was to enable students to have first-day access to course materials via Blackboard, their learning management system (LMS).
How was Inclusive Access implemented?
Connors State College piloted Inclusive Access in Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 in four mathematics courses and one science course. Students were provided with one MyLab and Mastering access codes per course to use when they logged into their LMS for the first time and linked to the MyLab purchase page.
Was the transition to Inclusive Access successful?
- Access: Across the four math courses implementing Inclusive Access during the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters, the percentage of students who accessed the course materials by the second week of class increased from 75% to 87, which translated to a higher percentage of students submitting homework earlier in the semester.
- Course-level results: In trigonometry, taught by Rock, student enrollment in MyLabs increased from 77% to 100% and between 90% and 100% of students in the course submitted each of the first five homework assignments.
Were students successful?
All students enrolled in the Trigonometry course earned As and Bs after Inclusive Access was implemented, with 67% of students enrolled in the course earning an A.
Professor Lynett Rock’s suggestion for a seamless transition
It is critical to provide all instructors with information about Inclusive Access and access to the courseware quickly so that they understand the new initiative and can communicate it effectively with students.
