REVISED Instructor Implementation Guide to include new topics and Learning Outcomes.

Learning Path Diagnostic
- For the course, 83 Full Course Pre- and Post-Diagnostic questions (Bloom's Levels I-VI) that link to key learning objectives in each topic.
- For each topic, 20 Pre- and Post-Test questions (Bloom's Levels I-VI) that link to all learning objectives in the topic.

With MyStudentSuccessLab students will have…
Topic List — This is the "meat" of the course, relevant to every student (ie. Time Management, Financial Literacy, etc.).

Learning Path Diagnostic — Measurement of skills that lead to personal development learning paths:

Topic Overview — Offers a summary of the Learning Outcomes/Skills to address the skills that will be built in the practice exercises and activities for the topic. It shows what will be covered, and where. Repetition is key to learning, and building vocabulary around how to articulate strengths and weaknesses is important.

Video Interviews - Features real student interviews 'by students, for students' on key questions related to the topic and helps student engagement. Allows students to 'connect' via their peers of all 'ages and stages' and see the relevance of what they are doing in this class and how it affects their success in other courses, on the job, and their personal lives. Having video is good, but having assignable questions to coach cognitive skills and communication around what the student has heard and how they interpret it is unique.

Practice Exercises (not graded) – Two to three per topic, a 'practice' denotes what students are learning about and trying something out, with no output from the experience. Allows students to "build confidence before it counts" in the graded Activities.

Activities (graded) — Two per topic, an 'activity' denotes what the student has learned the material and is ready to demonstrate the knowledge by formally doing something that produces an output for students. Activities are broken down into explicit steps to make it manageable - like a word problem. Effective exposure to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint is provided.
Essay: Students demonstrate their level of competency and to apply what they have learned.
Journal: Students are assigned journaling about what they've learned in their online journal and setting related goals.

With MyStudentSuccessLab instructors will have…
