The lecturer found that his students were underestimating the amount of studying they needed to do in order to pass the course so the fail rate for the final exam was high.
When MasteringPhysics was introduced into a group problem-solving class, students were more engaged in their learning before taking new individual credit-bearing MasteringPhysics assessments. The result is a significantly higher pass rate on the course.Read more

We get set homework every week. For me the benefit of MyMathLab is actually working through the examples that we've been taught in class. That's how I learn maths.
Llinos Owen, student, Engineering Maths, University of Liverpool, UK (MyMathLab)
I just wanted to let you know how helpful the Mastering Biology is! It makes me study better, almost forces me to it! And it is a perfect combination between pictures, videos and text. It's genius!
Renee Bakkemo, student, University of Essex (MasteringBiology)
It is like having a teacher by your side, you learn it a lot quicker than usual homework!

The average mark is approximately 10% higher than it was previously. Furthermore, the failure rate has decreased significantly - from 32% to 5-14% in recent years.
Marion Birch and Niels Walet, Manchester University (MasteringPhysics)
What really helped was that fact that [MasteringEngineering] was online, available 24/7. That really helped; students these days want to decide when they study. That's when we really saw our pass rates go up.
Gillian Saunders, lecturer, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands using MasteringEngineering with Hibbeler: Statics (MasteringEngineering)
Since I've been using it my pass rates have gone up - the first year I used the system it was quite striking.
Carrie Rutherford, London South Bank University, UK (MyMathLab)
The percentage of students who passed the course increased from 55% to 80%.
Halit Gonenc, University of Groningen, Netherlands (MyFinanceLab)
Results show that these students performed on average 10% better on the final exam.
