This online diagnostic tool identifies
each student’s unique needs with a Pretest that generates a personalized
Study Plan for each chapter, helping students focus on concepts they’re
having the most difficulty mastering. Students then take a Posttest
to measure their understanding of the material. An instructor Gradebook
is available to track and monitor student progress. A key component
of the Study Plan is the inclusion of visually and pedagogically rich
modules that begin with clearly stated learning objectives, followed
by knowledge-building animations with audio to present key concepts.
Modules also include discovery activities and self-check quizzes that
confirm students’ understanding of the module material.
