Powerful adaptive quizzing, a game-like format, direct links to the e-Book, instant feedback, and the promise of better grades make using LearningCurve a no brainer. Customized quizzing tailored to each text adapts to students responses and provides material at different difficulty levels and topics based on student performance. Students love the simple yet powerful system and instructors can access class reports to help refine lecture content.

A Fully interactive e-Book
Every LaunchPad e-Book comes with powerful study tools for students, video and multimedia content, and easy customization for instructors. Students can search, highlight, and bookmark, making it easier to study and access key content. And teachers can make sure their class gets just the book they want to deliver: customize and rearrange chapters, add and share notes and discussions, and link to quizzes, activities, and other resources.

Intuitive and Useful Analytics
The gradebook quickly and easily allows you to look up performance metrics for your whole class, for individual students and for individual assignments. Having ready access to this information can help in both lecture prep and in making office hours more productive and efficient.

Assignable Media Resources with Assessment
Each LaunchPad incorporates a wide range of interactive resources developed exclusively for the course, including tutorials, animations, videos, activities, and more. All of these resources can be assigned through LaunchPad, with assessment results reporting directly into the gradebook.

LaunchPad integrates dozens of video-based activities, based on exclusive videos shot for Worth Publishers, plus clips of research and news footage from the BBC Motion Gallery, UNICEF, and other sources. Activities span the full range of standard topics for development courses and are easily assignable and assessable.

Internet Exercises
Available for each chapter, these activities ask students to read actual published papers on topics in developmental psychology and use their critical thinking skills to answer some brief essay questions.
