Adaptive Learning

A way to enable personalized learning at scale

Not every student learns the same way and at the same rate. And now, thanks to advances in adaptive learning technology, you no longer have to teach as if they do. MyLab & Mastering with Adaptive Learning assesses student performance and activity in real time and, using data and analytics, personalizes content to reinforce concepts that target each student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Core Features of MyLab & Mastering

MyLab

A powerful homework and test manager

A powerful homework and test manager lets you create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests that are automatically graded. You can choose from a wide range of assignment options, including time limits, proctoring, and maximum number of attempts allowed. The bottom line: MyLab means less time grading and more time teaching.

Comprehensive online course content

Filled with a wealth of content that is tightly integrated with your textbook, MyLab lets you easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material. You can also add your own course materials to suit the needs of your students or department. In short, MyLab lets you teach exactly as you'd like.

Robust gradebook tracking

The online gradebook automatically tracks your students' results on tests, homework, and practice exercises and gives you control over managing results and calculating grades. The gradebook provides a number of flexible grading options, including exporting grades to a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. And, it lets you measure and document your students' learning outcomes.

Easily scalable and shareable content

MyLab enables you to manage multiple class sections, and lets other instructors copy your settings so a standardized syllabus can be maintained across your department. Should you want to use the same MyLab course next semester, with the same customized settings, you can copy your existing course exactly—and even share it with other faculty members.

 

Mastering

Everything you need in an easy-to-use format

Mastering provides a rich and flexible set of pre-built courses and assignments to get you started quickly. These assets can be used as is or customized to fit your specific teaching needs. The Calendar View on the course home page displays upcoming assignments and due dates, so you can easily stay organized.

A powerful gradebook

Mastering's gradebook records all scores for automatically graded assignments. Struggling students and challenging assignments are highlighted in red, giving you an at-a-glance view of potential hurdles in the course.

Diagnostics and insights that help you guide the class

Mastering's diagnostics provide unique insight into class and student performance. With a single click, you can view charts that summarize the most difficult problems, identify vulnerable students, and indicate grade distribution and score improvement over the duration of the course.

Wrong-answer feedback personalized for each student

Using data gathered from all of the students using the program, Mastering offers wrong-answer feedback that is specific to each student. Rather than simply providing feedback of the "right/wrong/try again" variety, Mastering guides students towards the correct final answer without giving the answer away.

Hints that offer clear guidance to students

Mastering provides hints of two types that help students work through, and ultimately solve, problems. Declarative hints provide advice on how to approach the problem, guiding students to the final answer. Socratic hints break a problem down into smaller sub-problems, which makes it easier for students to complete the original problem.

Dynamic, best-in-class content

Mastering is continually improving based on data generated through classroom use, resulting in content that is driven by the performance of actual students. We make corrections to improve problems that have ambiguous answer choices, ineffectual detractors, or tricky language, and continue to strengthen each problem through ongoing review of the data generated by Mastering students.
