Benefits for Students

This is what students have to say about JiTT:
  • ... it made me read on my own rather than wait for you to teach me.
  • The exercises allowed you to become familiar with the material so that you would be able to participate in class discussions.
  • It made me better disciplined.
  • ... I also liked the fact that the JiTT assignments were used along with class discussion. Even if you got the JiTT wrong you were still able to learn through the discussion.
JiTT supports the effective teaching practices outlined by Chickering and Gamson (1987) and the research on how students learn [see, for example, Bransford, Brown, and Cocking (1999, 2000)] in the following ways [see also Research on JiTT]:

Improving Pre-Class Preparation

Improving In-Class Learning

Promoting Long-term Learning
