Inside the ancillary, the content is only half of the story. Our learning environment allows instructors to assign web based content and harvest valuable data regarding student learning.

Every assignment is paired with a set of student learning assessments that ensure that students are paying attention, gathering the right data and on the right track.
We have developed off-the-shelf collections formatted to pair our assignments with leading Political Science textbooks. If we don’t have the collection you’re looking for, we can modify our chapters and content to fit yours.
