Educational Psychology

By Roxana Moreno

Educational Psychology helps students (future teachers) meet the challenges of today’s classrooms by emphasizing three challenges in teacher education: understanding and addressing the needs of the diversity of learners in the classroom, applying theories and research to the classroom, and critically examining teaching practices through reflection, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

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.


Assignments

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.

ORION Adaptive Practice (when available)

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.


Gradebook

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.
