Everything you need, all in one place

Pre-loaded Curriculum

Each MyACCUPLACER//MyLab Foundational Skills course comes pre-loaded with curriculum aligned to the ACCUPLACER diagnostics in reading, writing, arithmetic, and algebra.

With little preparation, teachers, instructors, and staff have exactly what they need to administer a program and help students succeed.

Meet each student at his or her own level of ability

Personalized Learning Pathways

Based on the student’s performance on an ACCUPLACER diagnostic test, MyACCUPLACER//MyLab Foundational Skills generates a personalized Learning Path for each student. The Learning Path indicates the student’s proficiency in each content area within each domain and offers direct links to the specific topics where skill-building is needed, at the exact level he or she needs it. As the student works through his or her Learning Path program and “masters” individual topics, he or she can see improvement through visual icons and progress bars.

Break traditional barriers to learning

Competency-based, Self-paced Activities

Each MyACCUPLACER//MyLab Foundational Skills Learning Path includes competency-based learning “activities” designed to help students build confidence and proficiency in specific skills. Scaffolded items include instructional overviews, tutorials, videos, interactive practice exercises (with instant feedback and step-by-step help), and short Mastery Quizzes to demonstrate proficiency. Students become actively engaged in their own learning processes and break traditional barriers to learning at their own pace.
