Enabling practice in authentic contexts
Research has shown that practice and assessments that closely align with authentic real-world applications afford deep levels of learning and engagement. When students are able to practice in authentic simulated contexts, the gap between learning itself and applying what has been learned can be reduced significantly.
Pearson MyLab Programming enables students to practice writing complete code in a highly authentic programming environment. By learning how to program within this realistic setting, students will be positioned to better apply the skills they acquire moving forward — later in the course, in subsequent courses, and in their future careers.
