The MyLab Gradebook offers an easy way for students and
instructors to view course performance. Item Analysis allows
instructors to quickly see trends by analyzing details like the
number of students who answered correctly/incorrectly, time
on task, and median time spend on a question by question basis.
And because it’s correlated with the AACSB Standards, instructors
can track students’ progress toward outcomes that the organization has deemed important in preparing students to be leaders.
“I was able to find myself actually learning at home rather than memorizing things for a class.”
