Overview

MyDevelopmentLab with MyVirtualTeen is a learning and assessment tool that allows instructors to assess student performance and adapt course content without investing a lot of additional time or resources.

Students benefit from this easy-to-use site with or without their instructor’s involvement. Students can test themselves on key content, track their progress, and utilize individually tailored study plan activities, including an e-book, simulations, newsfeeds, videos, and application exercises.

MyDevelopmentLab also provides students the opportunity to raise a virtual child from birth to age 18 and monitor the effects of specific parenting decisions over time, with a specific focus on the teenage years.
