incomplete comparisons


How can I revise this sentence to avoid incomplete comparisons? I would appreciate the help.

See example:

Contextualized learning permits students to express themselves and apply personal knowledge, which motivates them to perform better academically and become fully interested with any subject.

The software likely flags "better" because you haven't included what it is better than.  I don't use the software, but from other similar questions posted, I think the program is just making a suggestion to check for an incomplete comparison.  In this case, the reader can understand in context what the comparison is.  A computer program doesn't understand context.  I would change with to in before any subject.
