MyOMLab: What’s New in Summer, 2012

June 8, 2012

Good news for our MyOMLab users. Here are some nice updates that are effective on July 14th.

Blackboard Integration Blackboard users ware now be able to integrate their Blackboard course with any MyOMLab New Design course. This integration  allows for instructor and student single sign-on, inclusion of direct links to the MyOMLab course from within Blackboard content pages, and easy grade transfer. See www.pearsonhighered.com/blackboard.

Study Plan Enhanced Scoring This grades students on the number of sections or learning objectives they have mastered, rather than by the number of exercises they have worked correctly. It allows instructors to easily tie a grade to the Study Plan and quickly assess in which content areas students need more practice.

Study Plan Recommendations Page This new page provides students with a simplified, less overwhelming view of the Study Plan. Students will be shown the next five sections or learning objectives they should study, given easy access to practice problems, and provided with an automatically generated quiz that will allow them to prove their mastery of the material.

Quiz Me Automatically generated and customized by the instructor, Quiz Me allows students to prove their mastery of a section or learning objective directly from the Study Plan. This makes it easier for instructors to see in which content areas their students excel and with which ones they struggle. Instructors can choose how many questions make up each Quiz Me, the difficulty level of the questions included, and the score required for mastery.

Improved Study Plan Manager This new and improved feature gives instructors greater control over their students’ Study Plan experiences within a simplified framework. Instructors are able to customize the new Quiz Me feature, choose which course contents should be included in the Study Plan, specify which Study Plan contents should count towards their students’  scores, and more. A new overview page lets instructors to review their selections with ease.

Gradebook Alerts Gradebook alerts, accessible from the Gradebook, will allow instructors to view all students who have been inactive in their course for more than ten days, as well as each assignment that requires manual grading. Instructors can email students, grade assignments, and archive alerts directly from the alerts pages.
