Engage, challenge, and assess students' economic understanding

Digital Interactives

Economic principles are not static ideas, and learning about them shouldn’t be either!

Digital Interactives are dynamic and engaging activities that promote critical thinking and application of key economic principles.

Each Digital Interactive has progressive levels where students can explore, apply, compare, and analyze a topic.

Digital Interactives can be assigned and graded within MyLab, or used as a lecture tool to encourage engagement, classroom conversation, and group work.

Assess students' understanding using real-time economic data

Real-Time Data Analysis Exercises

Easy to assign and automatically graded, Real-Time Data Analysis exercises use up-to-the-minute, real-time macroeconomic data. These exercises communicate directly with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’s FRED™ site, so every time FRED posts new data, students see it.

Make homework a learning opportunity

Targeted Feedback and Learning Aids

If students get stuck on an exercise, they can get help when they need it most with robust learning aids. These include Help Me Solve This, which breaks down the problem into steps, figure animations, links to relevant pages of the eText, and more. Students who answer a question incorrectly receive targeted feedback to help develop their understanding — making homework a learning opportunity.

A powerful homework and test manager

A powerful homework and test manager lets you create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests that are automatically graded. You can choose from a wide range of assignment options, including time limits, proctoring, and maximum number of attempts allowed. The bottom line: MyLab means less time grading and more time teaching.

Pearson eText: access anytime, anywhere

Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, personalized reading experience available within MyLab. Students can use their computer or the mobile app to easily highlight and take notes all in one place — even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and rich media* give students access to the help they need, when they need it. You can also share your own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class.

*Available with select titles.

Comprehensive online course content

Filled with a wealth of content that is tightly integrated with your textbook, MyLab lets you easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material. You can also add your own course materials to suit the needs of your students or department. In short, MyLab lets you teach exactly as you'd like.

Robust gradebook tracking

The Gradebook offers an easy way for you and your students to see their performance in your course. Item Analysis lets you quickly see trends by analyzing details like the number of students who answered correctly/incorrectly, time on task, and more. And because it's correlated with the AACSB Standards, you can track students' progress toward outcomes that the organization has deemed important in preparing students to be leaders.

Easily scalable and shareable content

MyLab enables you to manage multiple class sections, and lets other instructors copy your settings so a standardized syllabus can be maintained across your department. Should you want to use the same MyLab course next semester, with the same customized settings, you can copy your existing course exactly — and even share it with other faculty members.

Mobile access

With access to their MyLab course via their tablet or mobile phone, students can now easily study and complete assignments anywhere, anytime!
