Engage and Prepare your Students with SmartBook
McGraw Hill’s adaptive learning solution is rooted in science, enabling you to boost student engagement, build on their knowledge, and prepare them for whatever comes next.
With more than a decade of collecting data from billions of questions answered across 90+ disciplines, we've learned a lot about adaptive learning's impact on student performance.
The results? The evolution of Connect’s SmartBook. We’ve created a secure space for learning that balances intentional rigor with the freedom to make mistakes. This is an environment that develops self-awareness through meaningful, immediate feedback that improves student success.

How SmartBook Adaptive Questions Work
Rooted in several learning science principles like spacing, chunking, and interleaving, SmartBook creates mini-cycles of questions that consist of no more than five concepts at a time creating smaller, easier to absorb “chunks” of content. Each mini-cycle works like this:
- It utilizes questions that are different but with related ideas.
- Once students demonstrate that they understand a concept, the related questions will no longer appear.
- If students continue to struggle with a concept, they are more likely to encounter repeating questions. This is how SmartBook limits guessing and short-term, rote memorization.
This unique question approach improves comprehension and long-term retention and sets Connect with SmartBook apart from any other adaptive tool on the market today.
