Education Companies and UMBC Study Student Success

Blackboard, VitalSource, and the University of Maryland–Baltimore County (UMBC) released the results of a study, “Improving Student Risk Predictions.” It finds that “engagement with digital learning tools can better predict student success than incoming GPA.” And “students at UMBC who are highly engaged with digital learning tools were 200% more likely to pass their courses than less active students. Specifically, incoming C students with low engagement had a 37% likelihood of passing a class while similar students exhibiting the highest level of engagement with Blackboard Learn and/or VitalSource had a more than 90% likelihood of passing a class.”

For more information, read the press release.
