SmartBook® Adaptive Reading Experience

McGraw-Hill Education AP programs are available with an AP SmartBook adaptive reading experience, designed to change the way students read and learn. Built on the proven LearnSmart engine, SmartBook creates a personalized reading program for each student.

As a student engages with SmartBook, the content continuously adapts, highlighting information requiring more student attention, and periodically encourages students to "recharge" their knowledge of important concepts to promote long-term retention. The adaptive learning technology of SmartBook helps create students who are:

  • More engaged with course content.
  • Better equipped to prioritize their time.
  • Effectively prepared and ready to participate in class.

Teachers can leverage LearnSmart's robust reporting tools, including metacognitive reports and most challenging learning objective reports, to identify areas in which students are struggling and provide targeted remediation to enhance learning.
