Created and supported by educators, Sapling Learning’s instructional online homework has also been tested by educators, and in each peer-reviewed study, Sapling Learning has been shown to significantly improve student performance and has been proven to drive student success.
Dr. Marc Loudon of Purdue University found that organic chemistry students that mostly used Sapling Learning in their studies scored over 1 letter grade higher than those that did not. He also demonstrated that driven students who study with Sapling Learning and EOC questions performed better than students who studied with EOC questions alone. Similarly, students who did not use EOC questions but used Sapling Learning performed better than students who used neither.
Dr. Matt Liberatore of the Colorado School of Mine’s compared a section of his course integrating Sapling Learning homework with a section using Blackboard quizzes and suggested homework and found that his students credited Sapling Learning’s instructional feedback with helping them succeed on exams. His Sapling Learning students achieved twice as many A’s and 50% more B’s than the control section, and the proportion of students passing with a C or better improved from 72% to 92%.
As Sapling Learning powerfully drives student success, departments experience greater retention and the opportunity to increase rigor and raise standards, while students proceed further toward their academic and career goals with greater core discipline performance.
