How It Works - Overview
LearnSmart Prep consists of three key phases - Tune In, Focus, Practice - to quickly and efficiently prepare students for a college-level course.
How It Works - Students
LearnSmart Prep uses a simple three-phase process to get students to the head of the class before the semester starts
- Tune In - Students are asked a sample series of questions related to a specific learning objective to assess their baseline understanding of the content and identify knowledge gaps.
- Focus - Based on responses to the Tune In questions, LearnSmart Prep presents a variety of learning resources (videos, detailed artwork, a narrative coach, supplemental reading and more) to teach the concepts you are struggling with most.
- Practice - After the Focus phase, LearnSmart Prep asks a more in-depth series of questions to confirm your understanding of the key objectives and adjusts as you go, providing suggested learning resources to assist you in mastering all core concepts.
