The results from the pilot speak to students’ renewed focus on outcomes-driven education in the wake of today’s evolving higher education landscape.

Quantitative Reasoning teaches students how to apply advanced reasoning skills to solve real-world problems. To help alleviate math anxiety and make the material more relatable, University of Phoenix® College of General Studies worked with zyBooks to reconceptualize a two-course undergraduate sequence in quantitative reasoning. zyBooks (zybooks.com) is a transformative technology platform that maximizes learner engagement and retention to deliver real outcomes in the critical STEM disciplines.

“Giving students the tools they need to succeed in high-demand, high-growth fields is core to our business and, more broadly, Wiley’s mission,” said Smita Bakshi, SVP, Wiley in Education Publishing and co-founder of zyBooks. “We are thrilled to be continuing our work with University of Phoenix as yet another way to accelerate the success of today’s students.”

The pilot illustrates that when leveraging the zyBooks platform, course withdrawal and failure percentages decreased to 4% and performance on both the midterm and final exams was markedly improved. The results show increased persistence, with nearly half of students continuing their math curriculum. In addition, students reported they felt more engaged with the subject matter and overall less stressed, while faculty noted a noticeable improvement in student attitudes.

“This pathway pilot is an example of how curriculum developers can work with higher education to holistically and authentically support students,” said Jacquelyn Kelly, Ph.D., Associate Dean, College of General Studies, University of Phoenix. “Through this work, University of Phoenix is proud to be teaching math differently online and continue our relentless focus on student success.”

The Quantitative Reasoning Pathway pilot for courses MTH/215T and MT/216T began in October 2019 and was transitioned into full implementation in December 2019 and February 2020, respectively. In total, more than 800 adult learners participated in the pilot.

This announcement further underscores Wiley’s mission to drive student outcomes by delivering tech-enabled platforms that accelerate the success of today’s students, setting them on a path for long-term success in high-demand careers.
