Using McGraw-Hill Connect Reports - Dr. Phil Janowicz

  1. 1. Prof. Phil Janowicz Department of Chemistry California State University - Fullerton
  2. 2. I am an Assistant Professor of Chemical Education at California State University – Fullerton (CSUF), and I started in August of 2010. I earned my bachelor’s degrees in Brain and Cognitive Science and also Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2005. I then earned my PhD in Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in May of 2010 under the tutelage of Prof. Jeffrey Moore. My research focuses on organic chemical education, specifically how to use technology to improve student learning in organic chemistry. I am researching the effectiveness of online homework, cognitive load, attention, motivation, and adaptive learning strategies. I’m currently teaching first and second semester organic chemistry at CSUF using a blended approach in a flipped classroom, and students have welcomed the extra problem-solving practice they receive during face-to-face meetings.
  3. 3.  Reports can be used many times for different purposes  Office hours  Emails  Informing Lectures (Just-in-Time teaching)  Designing Exams  Others you may discover!

  11. 11. When to Use: To Improve Teaching Most Challenging Learning Objectives -> Just-in-Time Teaching! (show in learnsmart)
  12. 12. Student Details Report Shows time spent and progress in LearnSmart for each chapter and student.
  13. 13. Metacognitive Skills Report  Shows LearnSmart performance broken down by student’s awareness of their knowledge (as measured by the confidence prompt before every LearnSmart item)  Ideally, students will have high %s in the Correct & aware column;  Moderate %s in the Incorrect & aware column paired with low %s in the unaware columns means students are at least aware of the holes in their knowledge  Moderate and high %s in either or both of the unaware columns means students are guessing a lot, and are likely not taking their assignment seriously.
