Class/Quiz Prep Assignments and Pre-Built Chapter Quizzes

Assess what your students know before they come to class with Class Prep assignments. Students get specific, automatic feedback to help improve their performance, while instructors get an accurate view of their students' knowledge level of the chapter before they come to class.

Students can prepare for an upcoming quiz with Quiz Prep assignments that test their knowledge of the text and classroom experience. These homework assignments are pre-built with automatic feedback and grade tracking.

Now you can cover each of the objectives featured in your textbook using the Pre-Built Chapter Quizzes. Composed of multiple-choice questions, instructors can choose to either customize each quiz or assign as is, and simply pick the due date.

Assign discussion questions on the most recent current events videos, articles, and educational media

CJ Search

Designed for quick and easy access in and out of the classroom, our media search tool, CJ Search, organizes current Criminal Justice related videos, news articles and other media from the Internet. Critical-thinking questions have been created for each of these media resources, allowing you to assign current videos to your students for assessment.

Access all of the multimedia resources for your textbook in one place

Multimedia Library and Point/CounterPoint Videos

To help you build assignments, or add an extra engaging element to your lectures, each MyLab Criminal Justice course comes with a Multimedia Library. Resources include videos such as Myths & Issues, flashcards, simulations, chapter PowerPoints, and summary.

Help your students hear a good explanation of WHY a speaker takes a certain stance with Point/CounterPoint videos. In each of these videos, individuals discuss two opposing sides of controversial CJ topics. Both sides are presented in under 10 minutes of video. With each argument a speaker introduces, justification and/or research that backs up that argument is included.
