This study is a great example of how to successfully integrate digital resources into a course. The results clearly show a correlation between using MasteringEngineering and better student performance on the course. It also points to ways in which using the Mastering assignment results early on could support student success. From the report: "Students who performed better on Mastering, performed better in both coursework and course exams. Spotting lower performing students earlier allows for earlier support to be given to potentially struggling students. Spending more time on the resource showed a positive correlation with gaining better course marks. Mastering Engineering scored 8.2 out of 10 in answer to the question ‘How likely are you to recommend MasteringEngineering to another student."
