Better practice for better grades!



The MyReadingLab Web site provides reading practice and assessment for college reading success. Students can practice individual reading skills and/or work within the comprehensive reading-level practice component to measure improvement in reading comprehension.

MyReadingLab improves reading ability with these features:

  • Diagnostic quizzes. The reading skills diagnostic in MyReadingLab will identify the areas in need of more attention so students can work efficiently, and the reading level locator diagnostic will establish an initial reading measure to measure progress.
  • Practice at the skill level and the comprehension level. Students can practice the major reading skills in isolation and/or work through exercises that help them improve with the overall reading process.
  • Personalized student study plans. Generated based on results of the diagnostic tests, individualized study plans direct students to the skills they need to improve reading ability.
  • Progress-tracking gradebook. The gradebook tracks progress in the exercises and overall.
  • Access to Study Skills, Vocabulary, and Research Navigator web sites. Subscriptions to these popular sites are included with MyReadingLab.
