Assist student learning

Question Help

Homework and practice questions in MyLab Engineering are correlated to the textbook and many regenerate algorithmically to give students unlimited opportunity for practice and mastery. The questions offer helpful feedback when students enter incorrect answers. The questions contain a number of tutorial tools and learning aids that give students the help they need when they need it.

Exercises provide step-by-step instruction, input-specific feedback, hints, videos, links to spreadsheets, sample problems, or the exact spot in the eText that addresses the learning objective of the problem.

Give students hands-on practice with hands-off grading

New Auto-graded Excel Projects for Select Titles

Auto-graded Excel Projects in MyLab Engineering allow you to seamlessly integrate Excel content into your course without manually grading spreadsheets.

Students have the opportunity to practice important engineering skills in Microsoft Excel, helping them master key concepts and gain proficiency with Excel. Students simply download a spreadsheet, complete the project in Excel, and then upload that file back into MyLab Engineering, where they receive reports on their work that provide personalized, detailed feedback.

Personalize learning and reinforce key concepts

Personalized Study Plan

The Study Plan helps students monitor their own progress, letting them see exactly which topics they need to practice, at-a-glance. MyLab Engineering generates a personalized Study Plan for each student based on his or her test results, and the Study Plan links directly to interactive, tutorial exercises for topics the student hasn't yet mastered. Students can regenerate these exercises with new values for unlimited practice, and the exercises include guided solutions and multimedia Learning Aids to give students the extra help they need. Instructors can view the students' Study Plans from the gradebook and use the mastery icons to see how they're doing on their own.
