McGraw-Hill Education’s adaptive technology is used to help inform and improve content. Student data is collected anonymously through adaptive technology programs like LearnSmart® and SmartBook® to help create Heat Maps. Heat Maps are visual reports that help pinpoint the “hotspots”, or specific learning objectives that students are struggling with. These reports are then shared in aggregate with author teams, allowing them to revise and fine-tune content to better explain key concepts to students.

Hear from Dr. Robert Feldman, McGraw-Hill Education author and Deputy Chancellor UMass Amherst, on how Heat Map technology informs his revision process.
