Slate tablets and more recently detachable tablets occupy a nebulous position in education. Institutions are increasingly required to assess the return on investment of deploying these devices. The purpose of this study was to investigate user engagement with the iPad Pro + Apple Pencil in the first semester distribution in the fall of 2016. . The research questions that guided this study were: 1) Did the iPad Pro 9.7 + Apple Pencil increase user engagement in fall 2016 semester relative to previous iPad models?, 2) Did the user engagement of the iPad Pro 9.7 + Apple Pencil at the end of the semester, exceed previous year's’ user engagement of other iPad models?, and 3) What apps are driving user end user engagement? A retrospective analysis and a user survey were employed to assess user engagement and user activities.
