In addition to the gradebook, SAM reporting options analyse performance at the student or section level. An exam playback feature — a video of students’ click path on assessment questions they got incorrect — shows you where they went wrong.

SAM’s easy-to-use interface gets instructors and students up and running. Express Assignment Creation delivers a streamlined course set-up through customised assignments that map to the learning objectives of the book in use. You also can copy sections from one term to the next, and roll out a master course to other instructors.
