Abstract

We evaluated the potential of the Assistment System to the WPI Community. An empirical study of 27 undergraduate students taking Calculus II showed that the system increased performance in two calculus sub-domains: volumes of rotation and integration by parts. Two learning questionnaires found that students had a positive attitude toward the system and thought it would help them on tests. We concluded that increased use of the Assistment System would benefit the community and made suggestions towards this goal.
