## Connect for Business Statistics and Analytics

Connect drives students to engage with coursework and makes managing assignments seamless, so you can spend more time teaching.

### SmartBook

Available within Connect, SmartBook 2.0 personalizes learning to individual student needs, continually adapting to pinpoint knowledge gaps and focus learning on concepts requiring additional study. For instructors, SmartBook tracks student progress and provides insights that guide teaching strategies and advanced instruction, for a more dynamic class experience.

### Assignable End-Of-Chapter Material

Connect for Business Statistics and Analytics helps students learn more efficiently by providing feedback and practice material when they need it, where they need it. Our assignable, gradable end-of-chapter content helps students learn to solve problems and apply the concepts in finance. Algorithmic versions allow students to practice problems as many times as they need, to ensure that they fully understand each problem.

### Algorithmic Problems

Algorithmic problems are auto-graded exercises using different numeric values each time a problem is served up to the student. This gives students practice in working a problem several times – same question, but different numbers each time. This also deters cheating because each student in a class or lab receives a slightly different version of the problem and correct answer.

### Prep Courses

Covering the basic concepts in Math, Statistics, and Excel, Connect’s Prep Courses create a level playing field, refreshing or filling in the gaps in students' knowledge about important pre-requisite skills needed for the business statistics course. Comprised of animated tutorial modules with quiz questions instructors can assign these as homework or include for optional practice.

### Guided Examples

These narrated, animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance.

### ExcelNow!

Enables students to quickly teach themselves the Excel skills they need for success in their business statistics course and future careers, whether on a PC or Mac. ExcelNow! helps students at a time when learning new concepts becomes easiest, when they are working in Excel – the teachable moment

### Megastat

MegaStat is a general purpose statistical package that is an Excel add-in which means that it works like an integral part of Excel. MegaStat was designed to support introductory level statistics courses at the undergraduate and MBA level; to relieve students from laborious calculations but do not want to relieve students from the need to learn why they are doing certain analyses and how to interpret the results.

### Connect Insight

Connect Insight offers easy-to-use visual displays of student performance and gradebook data. Quickly track performance across your entire section, all of your assignments, or drill in to find data insights for a specific class, individual student, or particular assignment.

### Connect Reports

Save time and gain student insights. Connect provides customizable reports on student performance, learning outcomes, at-risk students, and integrates easily with LMS gradebooks.
