Empower each learner

MyLab Writing 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.

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.

Address varied skill levels

Personalized and Adaptive Learning

For courses where students enter with varying skill levels, MyLab Writing provides unique, targeted skill practice through personalized and adaptive instruction. Starting with a pre-assessment known as the Path Builder, MyLab Writing diagnoses students’ strengths and weaknesses on prerequisite writing skills. The results of this pre-assessment inform each student’s learning path, and provide a personalized pathway for that student to work on requisite skills through contextualized multimodal activities — freeing up more class time for actual writing.
