Improve your writing 

Targeted Feedback

Everyone learns differently. Your friend may learn best from a written lesson, but you may absorb more from a video or by listening to instruction. MyLab Writing is designed to accommodate a wide range of learning styles by providing multimedia instruction and an adaptive study plan—so you can learn the way that is best for you.

  • In the Writing Assignments, you can use instructor-created peer review rubrics to evaluate and comment on other students' writing.
  • When giving feedback on your writing, instructors can add links to activities that address issues and strategies needed for review. Instructors may link to multimedia resources in Pearson Writer, which includes curated content from Purdue OWL.
  • Paper review by specialized tutors is available through Smarthinking, as is plagiarism detection through Turnitin®.

A centralized writing environment

Everything At Your Fingertips

Tired of toggling back and forth between your document, the assignment instructions, and other resources you need to complete your work? In MyLab Writing, you can compose, with access to your assignment and all relevant materials, in one space.

Instruction tailored to your writing needs

Adaptive Study Plan

As you progress through the course, MyLab Writing evaluates your results on each assessment and recommends new topics for study. The learning path will continually adapt to recommend topics you should review, based on your most recent performance.

Additional Features

Pearson Writer

Within a Writing Assignment, you can access the Writer’s Guide—powered by Pearson Writer—which provides a searchable online reference guide to grammar, writing, and research without leaving the composing space. In an exclusive partnership, Pearson Writer also integrates content from Purdue OWL, the most widely used online resource for writing.

Mobile-Friendly Design

Your MyLab's exercise player has been updated with a new, streamlined, mobile-friendly design. For many courses, you can access your course from iPad and Android tablets to work on exercises and review completed assignments. The fresh look is clean and intuitive for efficient studying any time, anywhere.

Pearson eText: access anytime, anywhere

The Pearson eText gives students access to their textbook anytime, anywhere. In addition to note taking, highlighting, and bookmarking, the Pearson eText offers interactive and sharing features. Rich media options let students watch lecture and example videos as they read or do their homework. Instructors can share their comments or highlights, and students can add their own, creating a tight community of learners in your class.

The Pearson eText companion app allows existing subscribers to access their titles on an iPad or Android tablet for either online or offline viewing.

Assignment Calendar

Never miss an assignment again. The Assignment Calendar in MyLab helps you track your progress in the course. Simply keep an eye on it and you'll never miss an assignment again.

24/7 access to online tutors*

Need help with homework? Everyone does once in a while. MyLab enables you to work one-on-one, in real-time with a tutor using an interactive whiteboard. Tutors will guide you through solving your problems using a problem-solving-based teaching style to help you learn underlying concepts. In this way, you’ll be better prepared to handle future assignments on your own.

*Please note that tutoring is available in selected MyLab products, and in those products you are eligible for one tutoring session of up to 30 minutes duration with your course. Additional hours can be purchased at reasonable rates.
