Overall Satisfaction with WileyPLUS
WileyPLUS is used for online teaching, homework, and assessment in the School of Business in multiple courses. Students purchase the product and instructors design the assignments, quizzes, and exams. A course eBook is also included when students purchase WileyPLUS, which often saves students a lot of money, as they don't have to purchase a text separately. WileyPLUS is also used in other departments and schools within the university. It comes with a huge question bank for homework and exams. It also has a very strong adaptive practice tool, which provides individual student-focused "drilling" and assessment. Of course it has a grade book too.
- The investment is made by students and I have not measured it
- Given WileyPLUS does most of the grading, it saves a lot of time for instructors
- The test-bank is large, often algorithmic, and allows for question pools
WileyPLUS is far better than one competing product I have used and noticeably better than a second competing product I have tested. I prefer not to name the other products. It is much easier to operate from an instructor perspective. Given the low level of questions it generates from students, I am certain it is easy for students to pick up and the level of Wiley support given to me and to students is great.

WileyPLUS is paired with a textbook in all cases I know. In the cases where I have seen the pairing, WileyPLUS works splendidly. If your chosen text does not come with the product, then Wiley does not see a "fit" or it is yet to come. I have not seen a text yet in my field of instruction where WileyPLUS is not a great companion. I teach in an area where weekly homework and frequent assessment is common and can be easily machine graded. Courses where essay or composition questions dominate homework or assessment would not necessarily be a great fit for WileyPLUS.
