Personalize each student’s learning experience

Tutorial Homework Problems

Mastering Computer Science tutorial homework problems are designed to emulate the instructor’s office-hour environment. Tutorials guide students through their course with multi-step problems that provide feedback specific to their errors and optional hints that break down the problems into smaller steps.

Wrong-answer feedback personalized for each student

Mastering Computer Science responds to a wide variety of common wrong answers that students enter at any step of a tutorial homework problem with immediate feedback specific to their error.

Optional Hints

Mastering Computer Science provides hints of two types that help students work through, and ultimately solve, problems. Declarative hints provide advice on how to approach the problem while Socratic hints break a problem down into smaller sub-problems.
