PsychNote Book Cover


By Robin M. Kowalski, Lisa Cravens-Brown

PsychNote is an innovative new learning program for Intro to Psych. Each area of study contains a condensed overview of important concepts supported by photos, charts, graphs and tables, and also includes a concept outline designed to be used for student note-taking. This outline provides a skeleton view of the important concepts discussed and space for a student to write notes from the instructor’s lecture. PsychNote provides students with a broad foundation of knowledge as they move into more advanced studies.

Read, Study, and Practice

Students learn course concepts using the complete online eTextbook, flashcards, crossword puzzles, practice questions, videos, and animations. Organized by learning objective, students can filter for relevant learning resources based on what they need to study most and print any section of the eTextbook.

ORION Adaptive Practice

Every student has a different starting point, and adaptive practice provides endless opportunities for practice to effectively prepare for class or quizzes and exams. Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve retention of information better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not. Students begin with a quick, chapter-level diagnostic to determine their initial level of understanding, and they can use the dashboard and quick reports to see what topics they know and don’t know.


Students who fully engage in WileyPLUS assignments do better in the course by more than a letter grade. Auto-graded assignments give students immediate feedback based on flexible assignment settings determined by the instructor, while the notification center allows students to set their own email notification policies to stay on track.

Instructors can select from extensive and reliable question banks to create and deploy reading, practice, homework, pre-post lectures, and assessment assignments. This course includes essay, label drag-and-drop, multiple choice, text entry, and true-/false question types.


Students know where they stand on WileyPLUS assignments, and they can track progress by learning objective.

Instructors have insights into student performance at the granular question attempt and can track trends by individual student, assignment, or learning objective. Flexible policies allow instructors to change points, set assignment weighing policies, extend individual due dates, or drop the lowest grade.
