Aplia Instructor Testimonial: Jarren Gonzales

Hear how Jarren Gonzales of Orange Coast Community College uses Aplia to build foundational skills.

“I was very engaged; the content in Aplia is useful. The study tools and materials in Aplia most definitely help me feel more prepared. I understood more than I would have otherwise.”

“[Aplia] has facilitated a greater level of meaningful engagement for my students, and has prepared them more effectively to be successful on the TSI Writing exam. Thank you.”

“Aplia helps and encourages the students to do the readings and pay more attention to the information, and it will allow you to bring in more examples and have APPLIED examples.”

FOR INSTRUCTORS

Cengage Learning Testing, powered by Cognero® for Sexton's Survey of ECON

ISBN: 9781305657748
Cengage Learning Testing, powered by Cognero® is a flexible, online system that allows you to: import, edit, and manipulate content from the text's test bank or elsewhere, including your own favorite test questions; create multiple test versions in an instant; and deliver tests from your LMS, your classroom, or wherever you want. Every question has undergone a series of accuracy checks and anti-piracy reviews, as well as a multi-point inspection to remove weak question options (e.g. all answers are correct), sharpen ambiguous questions, and ensure balanced coverage of major course concepts, difficulty levels, and Bloom's Taxonomy. The test bank questions form the basis for the assessments in the Survey of ECON 3 Online product, and are different from the Practice Quizzes available for students.
