Connect Operations Management Features

SmartBook®

Proven to help students get better grades and designed to encourage comprehension and long-term retention, SmartBook prompts students to demonstrate understanding of key concepts as they read and learn. The technology continually adapts to their behavior, guiding them to master the most difficult material.

LearnSmart®

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

Connect Reporting

View complete, at-a-glance reports for individual students or the whole class. Generate powerful data related to student performance across learning outcomes, specific topics, level of difficulty and more. Additionally, you can compare student performance in different sections of the course.

Connect Insight Video

Connect Insight

The first and only analytics tool of its kind, Connect Insight offers visual displays that provide at-a-glance information on how your students are doing. Easily track performance across your entire section, all of your assignments, or drill into data insights for a specific, class, an individual student, or a particular assignment.

Assignable End-Of-Chapter Material

Connect Operations Management 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.

Comprehensive Test Bank

Connect Business Math includes a comprehensive test bank of various question types, allowing the instructor to create auto-graded assessment material with multiple problem types and randomized question order.

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. Available for most OM titles.
