Case Study

Using LearnSmart has allowed me to approach `homework’ in a completely different way. Before, it was almost impossible for me to provide feedback to my students in a timely manner. With LearnSmart, feedback is immediate and students know exactly where they should focus and what their weaknesses are, and are able to keep on track and on task.
