As students read and learn, SmartBook assesses their comprehension of the material and actively adapts, guiding them to learn the most difficult concepts. Proven to help students raise grades, SmartBook encourages mastery and long-term retention.


An adaptive study tool proven to strengthen memory recall, increase class retention, and boost grades, LearnSmart enables students to study more efficiently and maximize their time by targeting what they know and what they don’t know. Real-time reports quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students—or the entire class.

Connect Insight

The first and only analytics tool of its kind, Connect Insight offers visual displays that provide at-a-glance, easy-to-decipher data on how your students are performing. Track performance across your entire section, or easily drill into data insights into an individual student, a particular assignment, or a specific class.

Connect Reporting

View complete, at-a-glance reports for individual students or the whole class. Generate powerful data related to student performance across learning outcomes, specific topics, level of difficulty and more. Additionally, you can compare student performance in different sections of the course.
