Why did Professor C.C. Coffman adopt Revel Sociology?
Coffman’s goal for Revel implementation was to increase student reading and engagement, leading to improved course exam scores and final grades.
How was Revel Sociology implemented?

Revel assignments included Revel chapter readings and corresponding module and chapter quizzes, with a total of 18 chapters assigned throughout the semester. Revel assignments accounted for 13% of the total course score.
Were students successful in the course?
Average final grades, exam scores, and field study scores were highest in Fall of 2017 when Revel was required.
- Students in Fall 2017 earned significantly higher average exam scores — six percentage points higher — than students in Fall 2016
- Students in Fall 2017 earned significantly higher final course scores — five percentage points higher — than students in Fall 2016
Did students like using Revel Sociology?
In Fall 2016, students using Revel in a variety of courses at several U.S. colleges completed a voluntary, end-of-semester survey, providing valuable insight on their experience.
- 88% of respondents agreed completing Revel readings and quizzes better prepared them for class.
- 79% of respondents agreed that experiencing the text through Revel helped them feel more engaged with the course content than a traditional textbook.
