Students are able to see how their responses compare to others (anonymously) in their class, school and across the country. The chapter content serves as a foundation and reference source for the course. Concept Checks are short, automatically graded assessments that appear in-line in the reader and allow students to check their understanding of key concepts one section at a time before moving on. These concept-based questions also allow you to ensure students are familiar with those concepts before coming to class so you can go further with the time you have. There are also valuable study tools like highlighting, note taking, dictionary, flashcards, a text-to-speech tool, and more.Chapter Assignment: These pre-built homework assignments include scenario-based questions with a variety of different problem types assessing comprehensive understanding of the entire chapter. These are automatically graded and include rejoinder feedback for right and wrong answers. Video Quiz: Highlighting relevant companies, these videos and their corresponding activities help students solidify core chapter concepts by tying chapter themes or topics to real-world examples.Study Tools: Students will find flashcards, lecture slides and Adaptive Test Prep, which allows students to ease the high anxiety that is often experienced around preparation for and taking exams.
