Hi, I'm here to talk to you about some of the exciting features you'll find in MyLab Automotive.

MyLab Automotive is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with Halderman’s Automotive Technology, to engage students and improve results.

It's been improved to better reflect the way instructors teach today.

First off, preparing students for a successful automotive career often means preparing them for ASE certification.

It can be difficult, however, to find the time and quality materials to help students prepare and be successful in the ASE exam.

But with ASE Test Prep, students can complete full-length, automatically graded tests for each ASE area.

Results and immediate feedback on each quiz prepare them for success by providing rationale, and saving them study time by identifying just the content they have yet to master.

A total of 800 ASE-style questions are available to help students get ready for the ASE exam.

Next, students often come to class with varying levels of preparedness.

Instructors struggle to understand where each student is academically and then lecture on all the content needed to prepare those students for shop and their future career.

MyLab Automotive's Pre- and Post-Tests feature, assesses students’ understanding and provides helpful learning aids including eText excerpts, videos, and simulations to support them as they answer questions.

Immediate feedback helps them streamline their study time by identifying the content they have not mastered.

Continuing on, students are often overwhelmed by the amount of foundational content they have to learn to support their success in the shop.

With the Video Activities feature, students have access to over 250 instructional, video-based activities that bring this content to life.

The videos use voice-over explanations and instructional tips to demonstrate skills and concepts, better preparing students for their time in the shop.

Follow-up questions with instant feedback help them assess their understanding of those concepts before moving on.

It's also common for today's students to come to class with varying levels of tools and parts knowledge. Preparing them with the knowledge they need to succeed in the shop can be a time consuming process.

However, with MyLab Automotive, students can practice the important task of identifying tools and parts using interactive drag-and-drop Labeling Activities.
These activities build practical skills that prepare them for shop and their future careers.

Finally, it can be challenging for instructors to create or find rich examples and activities for their students.

Those students also struggle to diagnose automotive issues, which results in anxiety for them.

That's solved with new Diagnostic Practice cases.

These rich diagnostic cases challenge students to use their knowledge and critical-thinking skills as they analyze customer complaints, diagnose problems, and select the appropriate repairs, helping them gain confidence and master essential skills for success in their course and their career.

And there you have it. That was a quick look at just a handful of the valuable features in MyLab Automotive.
