MindTap™ engages you to produce your best work-consistently. By seamlessly integrating course material with videos, activities, apps, and much more, MindTap creates a unique learning path that fosters increased comprehension and efficiency.

Features and Benefits

  • Engage students early. Every chapter starts with a "Fact or Fiction" exercise -- a brief True-False exercise to assess students' current knowledge.
  • Students progress through the main topics for every chapter chapter, first progressing through a reading, exercises, and a concept check quiz.
  • Case Studies and Video Cases allow students to interact with holistic, three-dimensional portraits of individuals dealing with psychopathologies, and a Post-Test concludes each chapter.
  • Control what content students see and when they see it with a learning path that can be used as-is or matched to your syllabus exactly.
  • Create a unique learning path of relevant readings, multimedia and activities that move students up the learning taxonomy from basic knowledge and comprehension to analysis, application and critical thinking.
  • Integrate your own content into the MindTap Reader using your own documents or pull from sources like RSS feeds, YouTube videos, websites, Google Docs and more.
  • Use powerful analytics and reports that provide a snapshot of class progress, time in course, engagement and completion.
  • Empower students with the information to know where they stand at all times – both individually and compared to the highest performers in class.
  • Help students stay organized and efficient with a single destination that reflects exactly what's important to you, the instructor.
  • Automatically grade assignments and quizzes.
