This anonymous study looks at MyLab Math at a post-1992 London University which is TEF silver rated with high levels of student satisfaction.
The University implemented three individual MyLab platforms (MyLab Math, MyLab Accounting and MyLab Writing). The goal of this study was to understand how impactful MyLab Math was and how it contributed to both learning and the student experience at the institution.
The key findings were:
- Independent study: The relationship between students’ percentage of Study Plans mastered and overall scores rose steeply until about 20% of the sections are completed. A little goes a long way in self-directed study.
- Student experience of learning: Students reported that MyLab Math both guided and consolidated their learning. Survey results showed 81% of students reported that MyLab Math had helped them to ‘understand the topics on the course’
- Attainment: Student gained average scores over 75%, with a median score of 89.1%, indicating good overall foundational subject knowledge across a diverse cohort.
