MSSL 3.0 We’ve been listening to your requests around MSSL, doing multiple focus groups/reviews/market touches, and we’ve applied all your feedback to create MSSL 3.0!
The 3 things you asked us to address, we’ve done the following to improve: Registration simplified – only 1 Topical MSSL; streamlined ease of entry Navigation obvious – call things what they are; organize intuitively; include ‘just in time’ learning/resources that are ‘student approved’ and vetted Assessment more/better – pre and post test; questions for each feature-video, practice, activities; time on task with CCNG; big-picture – its scalable now
This is how the contents look in the Learning Path .
This is the Critical Thinking Pre-Test start.
This is what the Critical Thinking Pre-Test looks like.
Here’s a Practice 1 example, Level 1-2 of Bloom’s. There are 2 Practices within each topic now.
The are 2 Activities per topic now. Activities are always graded based on performance (as opposed to credit for completion like with practice activities) Here’s an example project activity. Level Bloom’s 3-4.
Journaling is now an Activity. Instructors and students will be able to easily find it and assess on it.
Now, you’re back at your list of topics or contents in the Study Plan and ready to take the Post-Test Diagnostic .
You’ll love the 3 changes we made to the Student Resources tab! Added Student Facebook page – reviewed well with PSAB. Added FinishStrong247 YouTube channel – refined search of videos vetted ‘by students, for students’. Added MySearchLab.
This is what MySearchLab looks like. It helps students learn how to gather information for research.
This is the FinishStronger247 YouTube channel we created. We have been collaborating with students for “best of” how to videos and explanations that hit home…And are available on our main navigation panel & as a channel in each topic.
