Empower each learner

MyLab Reading & Writing Skills Personalized Learning

MyLab® is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

Develop critical reading and writing skills

Personalized and Adaptive Learning

MyLab Reading & Writing Skills provides unique, targeted skill practice through personalized and adaptive instruction. MyLab diagnoses students’ strengths and weaknesses through a pre-assessment known as the Path Builder, and offers up a personalized Learning Path. Students then receive targeted practice and multimodal activities to help them improve over time. Post-Tests are provided for each module.

Address varied reading levels

Reading Level Module

The Reading Level Module provides a wealth of reading selections in a variety of subject areas. MyLab Reading uses The Lexile® Framework for Reading to diagnose a student's reading ability. After an initial Locator Test, students receive readings and practice at their estimated reading level. Throughout the course, periodic diagnostic tests incrementally adjust their level with increasing precision. A Diagnostic activity and Homework Exercise are provided for each reading.

Build essential writing skills

Writing Practice Module

Writing Activities in the Writing Practice Module with Instant Feedback offer an optional, automated evaluation of writing content — before it gets submitted for grading. Electronic scoring provides feedback in 6 areas (Ideas, Organization, Conventions, Fluency, Word Choice, and Voice) as well as a Spelling and Grammar check. The online Writing Advisor offers further suggestions in each area for self-remediation.

Pearson eText

Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience. It allows students to easily highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place—even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it.

Quantify performance

Assess and Measure Outcomes

The online Gradebook enables you to see a full range of performance data — from individual students to an entire course. By identifying common mistakes, instructors can tailor their teaching accordingly. Item Analysis provides detailed insight on topic-level activities as well as on reading and writing traits. Advanced reporting scales measurements across multiple sections or an entire program.
