How do I navigate through a Student Edition Lab?
Each Student Edition Lab is comprised of 3-11 topics, and each topic has 4 learning modes – Intro, Observe, Practice and Review.
- Intro allows you to read an overview of the topic
- Observe allows you to watch how a skill is performed
- Practice allows you to practice the skill in a simulated environment
- Review challenges you with a series of objective-based questions related to the topic
To navigate between different learning modes within a topic, simply click on the Back and Continue buttons located in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen or on any of the Learning Mode tabs located at the top of the player window.
In the Observe learning mode, use the Observe learning mode navigation buttons to play the simulation, stop it, and to go back or move forward to different steps in the simulation.
When you have completed a topic (after you have answered the Intro questions), you can navigate to the next topic by clicking the Continue button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. To view all of the topics within the lab, simply view the listing displayed under the Topics bar in the left navigation panel. To exit the lab, click the Exit button.
How do I access the Student Edition Labs?
The Student Edition Labs are accessible through your textbook's Online Companion Web site. Follow the directions given in your textbook to access the labs online.
All instructors receive student grade reports once students log in to their Student Online Companion website, complete their labs’ objective-based questions and submit their results.
