More students pass the course

“Practice makes perfect” isn’t always the case. But when it comes to learning math, research suggests that more practice results in increased mastery and a higher chance of passing the course.

When we examined the performance of developmental math students using MyLab Math, we found that individual students were five times more likely to pass the course when they increased their number of MyLab Math homework attempts. So the more students used MyLab Math, the better they performed in the course.

In addition, evidence showed that when students had higher homework, quiz, and test scores in MyLab Math, they had a higher probability to pass the course (e.g. getting at least letter grade C).

In short, there’s a direct correlation between a student’s scores on various MyLab Math assessments and their final grade. Success in MyLab Math increases the likelihood that a student will pass the course.
