RALEIGH, N.C., July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- WebAssign, a leading provider of online instructional tools for faculty and students, today announced the release of its latest analytics feature for students, My Class Insights.

Integrated with the WebAssign application, My Class Insights gives students an overview of concepts they have learned and topics they are struggling with based on data from students' first attempt on a problem.

The user-friendly interface shows students a summary view of concept mastery, as well as provides the subsequent steps in the learning process. A practice button appears next to each topic so students can dive deeper into a series of similar question types.

"My Class Insights gives students more data and control over their learning, making WebAssign a powerful tool for increasing student engagement," said Jack Narayan, WebAssign chief academic officer and mathematics professor. "Now students can quickly see the areas they need to pay more attention to, and the data presented in My Class Insights should encourage them to fully invest in learning before an exam."

My Class Insights was designed primarily to act as a study tool, but can also be used as remediation or to identify gaps in prerequisite course knowledge. This is the latest feature in a series of analytical tools and reports WebAssign will continue to release throughout the year.
