If you want access to the new content in MyFoundationsLab--especially to try out a course with the Lexiles--then you need to copy a 'new' course in your account. When you do that, you will get all the new features and the new content. And if you need to, you can import assignments from the prior semester, as well as results (assuming that the students have enrolled in your new course and that the 'old' and 'new' assignments have matching content). Let us know what you think of these new lexiles!

You can assign one of these new sample Path Builders to maximize the effectiveness of your program.
To assign one of these new Path Builders, go to the Activities/Assessment Manager and select "Quizzes & Tests" from the filter at the top.
