Why did Charles J. Soos adopt MyLab Business Law?
Looking for a greater variety and quantity of options for self-study and application, as well as online content that was tightly integrated with the text, Soos adopted MyLab for his 2016 Summer classes.
How was MyLab Business Law implemented?
Soos’ implementation of MyLab has varied each semester since being added to the course but has always counted as an extra credit assignment. From Summer 2016 to Spring 2017, MyLab was required, becoming optional in Fall 2017.
MyLab assignments account for 5% extra credit and include the following:
- Warm-up exercises: These are to be completed prior to lecture.
- Video case studies: Each video case is followed by five multiple-choice questions, and students have one attempt for completion.
- Dynamic Study Modules (DSM)
- Chapter quizzes: They are comprised of 10–15 multiple-choice questions and learning aids are turned off.
- Midterm: 20% of the midterm exam (10 questions) are pulled from MyLab assignments.
Were students successful in the courses?
Data indicate that average midterm exam scores fell in both Business Law I and II after MyLab became optional.
- Average midterm scores dropped nine percentage points in Business Law I and five percentage points in Business Law II.
Do students like using MyLab Business Law?
Responses from the Fall 2017 end-of-semester survey of Soos’ students indicate that the majority of responding students recognize the value of MyLab Business Law.
- 97% of respondents agreed that their understanding of the course material increased as a result of using MyLab.
One student said:
“MyLab helped me reinforce the material I had read in the chapter and study for the exams.”
