All assignable content within Connect Economics is tagged across several categories including chapter learning objectives, Bloom’s Taxonomy levels, topic area, difficulty level, and AACSB criteria. Instructors have the ability to filter using these categories in order to build assignments around desired learning goals. Reports aggregate student performance across these areas to help instructors identify weak points, track performance across learning outcomes and compare performance across sections or terms.
Auto-graded, multi-part “capstone” exercises available for each chapter designed to help students see connections between key topics in the chapter and think critically about economics.
