Sixty percent of surveyed students said they think digital learning technologies have improved their grades, and one-fifth said those technologies significantly improved their grades. Students in STEM majors were the most likely to say technology has positively impacted their grades.

Approximately 60 percent of students agree that digital learning technology increased their engagement with course materials.
