Abstract

Two new resources for Introductory Statistics, Business Statistics, and Statistics for the Life Sciences that will engage students while also helping them learn - actively.

  • Learning and testing combined.

    Designed using recent educational research, Learning Curve is a new formative assessment program that combines adaptive question selection, personalized study plans, and state-of-the-art question analysis reports. Its game-like quizzing activities keep students engaged while helping them focus on the areas they need to study the most.
