SEG Research recently conducted a national, multi-site study of students enrolled in introductory-level college courses. The study evaluated the effectiveness of Wiley Visualizing, an educational program designed to better engage students, increase retention, and improve student learning by use of a pedagogy in which meaningful visuals and multimedia are integrated with the text.
Solid evidence of performance improvement remains rare, however, the findings indicate that students using Wiley Visualizing, including both print and online resources, made significantly greater gains in content area knowledge and skills and had higher retention over the course of the semester as compared to students in classes using competing textbooks and accompanying multimedia (SEG Research, 2010)*.
Wiley Visualizing supports faculty and promotes student engagement by facilitating comprehension leading to increased retention.
