CengageNOW Instructor Testimonial: Kristen Quinn

Hear how Kristen Quinn of Northern Essex Community College uses CengageNOW to help her students develop stronger study skills.

“I liked the videos because they were short enough to teach me and because they were short, I was able to find time to watch them again and again if I did not understand the first time.”

“Interactive learning through CengageNOWv2 is very helpful since it immediately tells you what you got wrong and how to go about solving it so you can learn from your mistakes and then further practice similar problems.”

“The examples and problems used made it easy to understand how things worked in the real world and the business atmosphere.”

“When I switched to CengageNOW in fall 2014, the passing rate jumped more than 11 points to 85.7%, and then to 87.5% in spring 2015. My summer 2015 face-to-face class had eight students, and all of them — 100% — passed.”

“CengageNOW allows students to do their required homework at their own pace, and helps me ensure that they do it. It also gives me a methodology to monitor what they are doing outside of class.”

“CengageNOWv2 helps me move in the direction of keeping the students accountable for their own learning. From my perspective, when students are more accountable (to themselves and me), they are more confident in their ability to master Accounting. Then they are on their way to success in the class.”
