LearningCurve questions are tagged directly to the text providing a tight integration with the material and both quality and quantity that truly distinguishes LearningCurve from the rest.
Because LearningCurve is a formative assessment and graded on completion many instructors have found that these quizzes are a perfect pre-lecture assignment that aids them in making the classroom more active, or flipped. LearningCurve is equally effective when used as a review element post-lecture. By making LearningCurve a small percentage of the overall grade instructors have found students come to class having regularly read and more prepared to apply the concepts to their learning.
