WebAssign Instructor Testimonial: Rochelle Beatty

Hear how Rochelle Beatty of Johnson County Community College uses Enhanced WebAssign to increase student success and persistence.

“Learning at your own pace, instant grades online, tutorials, videos and practice problems — WebAssign has everything I need.”

“With WebAssign, I would go through it to learn it, not just to get it done. I got a lot out of it.” Many of the features within the online program made Zak feel it was “just like being in a classroom. Like the ‘Watch it’ feature, or the videos. You can watch it in your room at 10pm and it’s like having another teacher right there.”

“WebAssign helped me practice and prepare. It really helped me do well on tests — I got a high ‘A’ in the class, a 98%–99% average."

“I had a difficult time understanding my professor, so I relied on WebAssign a lot. It really helped me with the skills I needed to get through the course.”

“WebAssign really helped me have a better understanding of how to do a problem, so I could think through similar and harder problems. WebAssign helped me get the A because everything is in there.”

“Students loved the Watch It videos … They weren’t trying to read and interpret concepts – they had someone telling them what was being stated. My students have always been highly engaged, but they are comprehending the content better.”
