OWLv2 results in Mastery, Not Memorization

OWLv2’s Mastery Learning activities let students work at their own pace until they mastery the concept.

“It gives you a warning if there may be an incorrect submission so you have a chance to recheck before you submit answer. If you get the question wrong, it explains the solution in detail so that you can still continue to learn.”

"During class lectures, you’re given the information but not how to use it. With chemistry it’s all about practice, and OWLv2 gives you so many options to learn and use the content.”

“It breaks down the problems into steps that make it easy to learn the concepts.”

“I like that it really breaks down the chapter in terms of the basic concepts, then there are separate questions that involve applying the concepts and theories in order to solve the problems. It provides a really great learning structure for grasping new material.”

“The mastery questions are awesome. They are set up so you can’t just look at them and apply a formula. They force students to go beyond the foundational concepts and really tap into higher-level thinking.”

“If you hold students accountable, they realize OWLv2 will help them understand concepts and get a better grade.”
