Personalized Study Plan

Your MyLab* may be equipped to offer each student a personalized study plan. With this plan, learners can self-test on key concepts and skills, especially those they need the most help with.

The study plan reflects each student’s comprehension by learning objective. To gauge this, MyLab looks at the student’s responses to questions within chapter assignments, which are tied to learning objectives.

The plan may include eText reading assignments, and review, videos, or animations. MyLab will send you a report with the student’s study plan results, which can help you adapt course material to the needs of individual students or the entire class.

*The Personalized Study Plan is available in MyLab Health Professions for Beaman, Comprehensive Medical Assisting, 4th Edition.
