Key Features

  • LearnSmart

    LearnSmart

    LearnSmart is an adaptive study tool proven to strengthen memory recall, increase class retention, and boost grades. Students are able to study more efficiently because they are made aware of what they know and don’t know. Real-time reports quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students—or the entire class.

  • Interactive Presentations

    Interactive Presentations

    Interactive Presentations teach each chapter’s core learning objectives and concepts through an engaging, hands-on presentation, bringing the text content to life. Interactive Presentations harness the full power of technology to truly engage and appeal to all learning styles. Interactive Presentations are ideal in all class formats—online, face to-face or hybrid.

  • SmartBook

    SmartBook

    SmartBook is the first and only adaptive reading experience designed to change the way students read and learn. It creates a personalized reading experience by highlighting the most impactful concepts a student needs to learn at that moment in time.  As a student engages with SmartBook, the reading experience continuously adapts by highlighting content based on what the student knows and doesn’t know. This ensures that the focus is on the content he or she needs to learn, while simultaneously promoting long-term retention of material. Use SmartBook’s real-time reports to quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students–or the entire class. The end result? Students are more engaged with course content, can better prioritize their time, and come to class ready to participate.

More Features

  • Integrated eBook

    When learning tools are interactive, content is more approachable and engagement is deeper. Connect includes an Integrated eBook that builds student comprehension through animation, audio and video. As part of its rich media format, students can insert and review notes, highlight text, conduct searches for specific content and interact with high-impact images.

  • Algorithmic Questions

    Algorithmic capability within Connect Accounting provides instructors with the ability to assign unique data for each exercise and each attempt, providing an infinite number of assignments with solutions. Consequently, students can work the same problem structure with different number sets until they master the task. The immediate scoring and feedback options in Connect Accounting help guide and optimize student learning.

  • Guided Examples

    Guided Examples provide narrated and animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of selected exercises in Connect Accounting. Allowing the student to identify, review or reinforce the concepts and activities covered in class. Guided Examples provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance.

  • Self-Quiz and Study

    Self Quiz and Study (SQS) connects each student to the learning resources needed for success in the course. For each chapter, students take a practice test to initiate the Self Quiz and Study, immediately upon completing the practice test see how their performance compares to chapter learning objectives within chapters, and then receive a Study Plan that recommends specific readings from the text, supplemental study material, and practice work that will improve their understanding and mastery of each learning objective.

  • End of Chapter and Testbank Content

    Connect includes direct textbook End-of-Chapter problem material, select Algorithmic problem material, and Test Bank questions. Assign students online homework, test and quiz questions with multiple problem types, algorithmic variation, and randomized question order. This fully integrated solution helps students master the concepts, practice problems and ultimately achieve success.

     

  • Applying Excel

    Applying Excel problems provide students with an opportunity to build their own Excel worksheets and formulas by recreating examples provided in the text, so that they are developing Excel skills in the context of managerial accounting. Students are then asked a series of “what if” questions in which they analyze how and why the related pieces of accounting data affect each other. This feature is integrated into Connect Accounting with algorithmic variables; the Excel spreadsheet can be uploaded by the student and graded by the instructor manually, while the questions that test the validity of their worksheets and the what-if questions are graded automatically.

  • Accounting Reports

    Connect Accounting’s Reporting feature allows instructors to review students’ performance against criteria such as AACSB standards and chapter learning objectives.

Case Study

Connect Accounting causes students to fully engage with the course material. It also changes the nature of my review. Instead of spending time with the mechanics of grading, I can review scores and analyze individual assignment items and individual student scores to best decide what follow-up is appropriate.
