Better student success with Pre-lecture assignments

Case Study (PDF)

Andrea Aspbury
Texas State University

1-Jan-2011

View Document

Organismal Biology students who completed prelecture quizzes in MasteringBiology receive significantly higher exam scores than those students who do not complete them. In addition, requiring prequizzes has resulted in record-low D/F/W rates for the course.
