New MyWritingLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals.
- A personalized study plan for each student begins with the Path Builder pre-assessment, a diagnostic tool aligned to specific learning outcomes. Once completed, students receive customized learning modules in a format called the Learning Path. Within each module, a diagnostic Skill Check assesses students’ proficiency and determines which topics are mastered and which need more work. Students move within progressive exercise sets from literal comprehension (Recall), to critical comprehension (Apply), to demonstrating concepts within their own writing (Write).
- Assessment enables both instructors and students to track progress and get immediate feedback. With results feeding into a powerful gradebook, the assessment program helps instructors identify student challenges early–and find the best resources with which to help students.
- An assignment calendar allows instructors to assign graded activities, with specific deadlines, and measure student progress.
- The Pearson eText allows students to access their textbook anytime, anywhere, and any way they want–including on their iPad.
- Integrated learning aids such as videos, animations, and glossaries provide a range of different resources to address different learning styles.
- NEW marginal icons in the text point to multimedia and assets hosted in MyWritingLab for students’ further learning and practice: Watch, Listen, Explore, and Practice.
