Gradebook and Results Management

Assessment in tandem with other disciplines


The Pathbuilder can be used to automate the course recommendation process. Schools can create lists of the courses that students can potentially be put into. From the Gradebook, they can quickly validate students based on their results, and send an email to the students to tell them their next step. Use as testing and preparation validation in tandem with other Pearson MyLab & Mastering products such as MyLab Foundational Skills®, MasteringA&P™, Mastering Chemistry™, and Mastering Physics™.
