Everything you need to foster better writing, all in one place

Writing Space

Better writers make great learners — who perform better in their courses. Designed to help you develop and assess concept mastery and critical thinking, the Writing Space offers a single place to create, track, and grade writing assignments, provide resources, and exchange meaningful, personalized feedback with students, quickly and easily. Thanks to auto-graded, assisted-graded, and create-your-own assignments, you decide your level of involvement in evaluating students' work. The auto-graded option allows you to assign writing in large classes without having to grade essays by hand. And because of integration with Turnitin®, Writing Space can check students’ work for improper citation or plagiarism.

Current, comprehensive, and cutting edge, the MyLab Psychology Video Series takes the viewer from the research lab to inside the brain to out on the street for real-world applications. Six segments spanning a variety of interesting topics are included for each chapter.

Raise a virtual child or live a virtual life

MyVirtuals

MyVirtualChild, MyVirtualTeen, and MyVirtualLife are interactive, web-based simulations that foster critical thinking by enabling students to apply key concepts in engaging, simulated environments. Available for Developmental Psychology and Lifespan Development courses, the MyVirtuals let students experience developmental principles in action.

Check out a recent case study

MyVirtualLife is two simulations in one. The first simulation allows you to raise a child from birth to age 18 and monitor the effects of your parenting decisions over time. In the second simulation you will make first person decisions and see the impact of those decisions on your simulated future self over time.

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.

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.
