Why did Dr. Patricia Eshagh adopt Revel?
Dr. Eshagh elected to use Revel in her course with the goal of assigning quizzes to improve student reading, engagement, and preparedness for class sessions. She also hoped to ultimately improve course discussion, along with the ability of her students to think critically and make inferences.
How was Revel implemented?
Dr. Eshagh implemented Revel in her two online sections of Introduction to the Humanities in Fall 2017. Grades for the course were comprised of Revel quizzes, weekly reflection assignments, a midterm exam, and a final exam.
Students were required to complete assigned textbook readings within Revel by the due date. As students read each chapter section, they were also required to complete the associated Revel module quiz to assess comprehension. Revel module quizzes accounted for 17% of the total course grade.
Were students successful in the course?
Revel contributed to student success in the following ways:
- Students who earned a higher percentage of total Revel quiz points also earned a higher percentage of total weekly reflection assignment points and overall final percentage of points in the course.
- Students who passed the course earned significantly higher average total Revel quiz points than students who failed the course
Did students like using Revel?
In Fall 2017, students in Dr. Eshagh’s Introduction to Humanities course completed an end-of-semester survey, providing valuable insight on their experience using Revel in the course.
- 100 percent of respondents were able to log in to Revel the first week of class.
- 93 percent of respondents rated their overall experience with Revel as “excellent” or “good”.
One student said:
“Some benefits of Revel are being able to read and learn things at your own pace, it also allowed me to pay closer attention to lecture.”
