In a class comparison, Pamela Lizardi says students in her Packback course earn higher exam grades

Pamela Lizardi compared test scores between students using Packback and students not using the discussion board and found students in her Packback class had higher scores. Lizardi says that while better test scores are excellent, what this shows her was more cognitive development in students using Packback.

“The reason I am enjoying my experience with Packback is because I see the cognitive level of my students going up. As I’m doing a class comparison to last semester, I’ve already noticed that the test scores with the class using Packback are higher than the test scores of the class that didn’t. That automatically shows, there’s just more cognitive development going on. And I can also tell, from the level of the questions that the students ask, that they’re asking about things that they want to know the answers to. And the response questions, you can tell, are a lot higher when it’s a question that builds curiosity.”
