How do you learn?

Exclusive Research-based Model

MyLab Student Success helps you build skills for ongoing personal and professional development. We all think we’re better at things than we really are. By identifying potential strengths and weaknesses, MyLab Student Success uses a research-based model to provide a personalized action plan for developing college and career skills. This will help you apply these skills successfully across ALL your courses and in your future career!

What’s your skill set across ALL college and career success topics?

Full Course Pre- and Post-Diagnostic Assessments

The Full Course Pre- and Post-Diagnostic questions link to key learning objectives in topics like Listening and Note Taking, Financial Literacy (aka. “managing your money”), Majors and Careers (including writing your resume), and more. Mastering these skills is not just about getting a good letter grade—these are skills you’ll take with you for life!

This assessment will help personalize your learning and give you information on what topics you’re pretty good at (marked with a star icon for “mastery”) and which topics you’ll need to brush up on (marked with a pencil icon for “needs study”). You will save time and improve your grades by working on what you need to, when you need to!

How does MyLab Student Success work?

Learning Path

We know that no one is ever an “expert” in “soft skills.” To get better at something, there’s no shortcut—you’ve got to practice! Each topic in the Learning Path (Student Success and Career Path) is organized by what you need to know, complete with student video interviews, interactive practice exercises, and activities to help you master college and career skills, and to build a foundation for success in academics, career, and life.

Do you watch videos to learn how to do things?


All the students we’ve worked with said they watch videos to learn how to do things, and "good" videos are a must—short, sweet, and to the point. Humor helps, too! In MyLab Student Success, you'll have access to three types of videos which include Student Video and Role Plays on key issues that were created “by students, for students”; a FinishStrong247 YouTube channel of “how to” videos that were selected by students like you; and additional Video Cases and interactive lessons.

Learning Catalytics™

Learning Catalytics is an interactive classroom tool that lets you use your smartphone, tablet, or laptop to participate and stay engaged. Simply respond to the questions your instructor posts during class. Your professor can use the results of these questions to help address misunderstandings, start small group discussions, or decide that you’re ready to move on to a new idea. With Learning Catalytics, you can tell your professor what you did — or didn’t — understand without saying a word.

Based on your results, work through the videos, practice exercises, and graded activities as guided solutions and multimedia learning aids to give you the support you need.
