MyFoundationsLab is a complete online mastery-based resource for assessing and remediating college- and career-readiness skills in reading, writing and mathematics. The system offers a rich environment of pre-built or customized assessments, personalized learning plans, and highly interactive learning activities that enable students to master skills at their own paces. Ideal for learners of various levels and ages, including continuing education or workforce readiness programs, MyFoundationsLab provides the skill development students need in order to be successful in college level courses or careers.
A comprehensive diagnostic tool, called Path Builder, helps each student gain a personalized learning path in reading, writing, or math. Path Builder diagnostic tests are pre-built to align with common readiness or workplace standards or can be customized to fit specific goals.
Once students complete a Path Builder diagnostic test, they receive a personalized set of content modules, in a format called the Learning Path. Each content module in a student’s Learning Path covers a general concept such as “Fractions” or “Sentences”. Once inside a module, a student can take a shorter diagnostic, called a Skills Check, which defines the exact smaller topics a student needs to understand in order to prove mastery for the module. These smaller topics, for example, might include “Multiplying Fractions” or “Identifying Verbs” --ideas related to the larger module concept.
The heart of MyFoundationsLab is the depth and range of its pre-built learning activities, each designed to help students gain confidence and proficiency in specific skills. Students can work in activities at their own pace and can leave and return to work at the exact location they left off. There may be several activities to complete within a particular topic. Each activity is scored and tracked in a comprehensive gradebook and students can review their submitted activities at any time. Once students complete all activities in a topic, they can show mastery by taking a topic post-test. Once a student completes all topics in a module, the student’s learning path is updated to show the progress.
