"8.02 TEAL+x: Student Say Yes to MITx in 8.02 TEAL". In this Faculty Newsletter article, Prof. Belcher and Dr. Rayyan explain how homework problems are coded into the MITx platform so that students can immediately check their intermediate and final answers -- with a green check mark if correct or a red cross if incorrect. 92% of students rated the checkable answers on MITx as helpful, enabling them to:

  1. learn from their mistakes
  2. reduce stress
  3. and raise self-confidence.
