Over the course of developing Experience Psychology, we asked these questions and many more. In order to answer these questions, we visited with faculty across the country and also observed you doing what you do to prepare and delivery your courses. We observed students as they worked through assignments and studied for exams. The result of these thousands of hours of research and development is a state of the art learning environment tool that bolsters student performance at the same time as it makes instructor’s lives easier and more efficient. To experience this environment for yourself, please visit www.mcgraw-hillconnect.com. Included in Connect for Experience Psychology are exercises and questions that will help students gauge their understanding of the Learning Objectives. This consists of multiple choice questions, click and drag activities, and true/false questions.
